Moth Trapping in a Suffolk garden

Don't be fooled by the blog title; I do moths too now!
Pictures to follow, but here is a list from last night (Sunday):

Barred Sallow- my favourite of the haul.
Brindled Green
Beaded Chestnut
Setaceous Hebrew Character- loads of these, and the award for best name too.
Hebrew Character
Rosy Rustic
Dotted Clay
Lesser Yellow Underwing
Large Yellow Underwing
Common Wainscot

There were a few that 'got away', and some poor pictures which were of no use! But at least we got 10 species nailed on, out of about 25-30 Moths in the trap.
