The catch was about half that of the previous night, the only new moth for the year being a fresh Spectacle, flying a couple of months ahead of schedule: "this moth is out in June, sometimes late May" (South 1908). A single Pale Pinion – a different individual to the one caught at the weekend – rested on a nearby wall.
