Last weekend was a moth weekend! My father and I had 3 nights of trapping- 2 at Strumpshaw and 1 at Snettisham RSPB reserve. The results were 90 sp at Strumpy on thurs night, 63 at Snetts and a whopping 111 at Strumpy again on the Sunday morning.
Needless to say there were many year ticks and even a few ticks for me/us, many of the year ticks were moths I have not seen since volunteering at titchwell six years ago!

A small selection of photos below

Stunning location for trapping- check out all the stonecrop in flower as well as lots of vipers bugloss

un-id'd so far- (not a moth either!)
