I'm currently in Oxford but the garden trap was kindly run on my behalf last night. The best catch was this Palpita vitrealis. A lovely moth, that I've been lucky enough to see in France before now - though this is the first garden record. An uncommon visitor: as of last year there had been only 3 records across all of north Wales (all from Peter in 2006 & 2013). Seems to be a species that is becoming more regular, possibly due to climate change.
Other migrants were Vestal, Udea ferrugalis and Silver Y.
