Over the weekend spent a couple of evenings bumbling about in the dark. My moth trap needed a new battery (not any more - yay!) so I was working with only a head torch. One flowering sallow proved moderately productive, while I also picked the weekend of the big toad orgy. This meant I spent more time looking at the ground not to stand on toads rather than looking at the path sides for moths, though I don't believe I missed much. Moth species encountered were Common Quaker, Hebrew Character, Chestnut and the micro Agonopterix ocellana, which proved to be new to the reserve list (the only one). A couple of other bits and bobs were added, taking the total to 305 species.
