Norfolk moths: Rockland St. Peter garden, 27 August 2013

Very excited about my inaugural night with new Skinner trap. A fine, calm night, almost cloudless and relatively cool (close to 10°C?); mist in pre-dawn – heavy dew. The morning catch was quite manageable, although, being a bit rusty after 25 years, it still took five hours to get identify them all.
