Final night's mothing

After a break of one night I put the trap out for the last time on the penultimate night of our stay. The Yellow-ringed Carpet was the best of the bunch but it was nice to see another couple of Fox Moths. Unfortunately there were only a couple of wings left of my first Lunar Thorn.
