Norfolk moths: Rockland St. Peter garden, 18 October 2013

A layer of cloud and southerly breeze made for a mild 18 October night - several degrees warmer than the past few nights. The full moon was only occasionally visible as a white glow. The evening began with a moderate SE breeze and temperature of 12.5°C at 20h00; by 06h00 the temperature was a similar 11.9°C, with a light S breeze. By 05h00, the trap and surrounding area were wet and the drizzle continued for a further half hour.  

No new species today and a lot fewer moths.
