Moth Trap 50

Another good catch (well for my modest set up) in somewhat damp and overcast conditions this morning. For the first time in a long time Heart and Dart was not the most abundant moth in the trap, that honour went to the Common Footman. There were 2 new ones for me and a second Campion.
