Moth Trap 55

A very reduced catch this morning. I found the trap on it's side, with the lid half off. As a consequence only 4 moths found - although a couple of good ones including 1 new for me. I'm assuming it was the wind, could've been a cat though..

Dun Bar 1
Marbled Green 1
Common Pug 1
Emmelina monodactyla (new !)

Emmelina monodactyla - very common, but still a first for me. Given that they feed on Bindweed, I'm surprised there aren't a lot more in my garden
