  • Old lady x 2 
  • Garden carpet x 1 
  • Sebaceous hebrew character x 1 
  • Garden pebble x 2 
  • Least yellow underwing x 2 

Here are the other species I caught;

  • Silver Y x 11 
  • Orange swift x 9 
  • Square spot rustic x 28 
  • Flame shoulder x 11 
  • Brimstone x 5 
  • Common / lesser common rustic x 2 
  • Yellow shell x 2

  • Willow beauty x 2 
  • Common marbled carpet x 1
