2 Heart and dart
2 Setaceous Hebrew Character (new !)
1 Garden Carpet (new !)
1 Double striped pug
1 Marbled Minor (new !)

In addition i saw a large caddis fly around the light last night, I think a Pharynganea grandis and sorting through other pics from yesterday found the bee - Anthophora plumipes
