Moth trapping

I had good hopes of an interesting catch last night, but hadn't bargained on the temperature dropping so sharply - it was down to just under 5 degrees at the airport - and so I had to be content with just 9 moths, including the (inevitable?) White Ermine. Danny Arnold (visiting moth trapper) commented last week how common it was here. Others were Small Square-spots, Heart and Dart and a Flame Shoulder (photo).
