Of the four nights I have run the new trap so far, this was the most diverse, with some 35 species of macro moth. A nice big Bulrush Wainscot was the first out, but this was the night of the carpets, with six species, including a lovely fresh Green Carpet, two ginger-coloured Common Marbled Carpets and a neat Purple Bar.
