Well, no migrants on the first night, but some moths I don't see at home: 8 Feathered Ranunculus and an Autumnal Rustic (both species I usually record at Porthgwarra though).

In some ways the most interesting record was 11 Red-line Quakers. Most - all I think - were very different from any Red-line Quaker I've seen at home, dark and reddish. It seems that they belong to the form rufa, apparently commonest in the north and west.

Other moths in the trap that night were Little Dwarf Elachista canapennella, 4 Light Brown Apple Moths Epiphyas postvittana, 3 Narrow-winged Greys Eudonia angustea, 2 Common Marbled Carpets, Brimstone Moth, Yellow-tail, 2 Large Yellow Underwings, Small Square-spot, 3 Setaceous Hebrew Characters, 4 Square-spot Rustics, Black Rustic, Green-brindled Crescent, 7 Beaded Chestnuts, 39 Lunar Underwings, Large Wainscot and Snout.
Unbeknown to me the couple staying at the cottage we normally hire were also birders and moth-ers and they managed much better... a Radford's Flame Shoulder! Precisely what I was hoping for. Ah well.
The following night my quest for migrants was, well, not exactly satisfied, but there was a single Dark Sword-grass.
