Last night's catch

Here is what I caught last night. The minimum temperature was 12c. I trapped with two traps, a 125w with a clear MV bulb (lets out out more light) and a 400w trap (also MV).
You can see how big the 400w bulbs are, from the photo, also visible is the clear 125w.

My highlight, Scarce Silver Line

I trapped with the 125w in by far the best moth-ing  location I know, I trapped with the 400w just outside the house. If I had swapped trap positions, I'm sure the 400w would have had many more.

Among the list was one new macro for me, Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpet, and many new micros. Also had plenty of NFYs, such as Scarce Silver Line, Double Lobed, Svensson's Copper Underwing, True Lovers Knot, and probably a few I've missed.
