Two Garden ticks

Ran two traps last night. The actinic at Stibbington GP was quite interesting with a Maiden's Blush (Cyclophora punctaria) and a Canary-shouldered Thorn (Ennomos alniaria), continuing a good year for the latter, but the MV in the garden produced a couple of garden firsts. There have apparently been a few second generation Treble-bars recently in the area. The Light Emerald is also a second generation adult and was noticably small.

There were 120 Large Yellow Underwings (Noctua pronuba) in the garden trap, which is a record number for me.
