30 Days Wild Pan-species Challenge: Day 19

Unsurprisingly, given the perfect moth-trapping weather last night, I found my best catch of the year waiting for me this morning. With ten lifers making up their numbers!

My favourite was this female Map-winged Swift:

Making up the large micro lifer contingent was this Grapholita janthinana:

The scarcest moth in the trap was a Valerian Pug, also a lifer.
