A Silver Y was new for the year, and was perhaps part of a small influx of these migrants that was reported in southern counties that night.

Friday night proved to be excellent, though mainly thanks to an exciting discovery in the Brecks, about which I will write soon. But there were some interesting moths at home too, including this Ruddy Flat-body Agonopterix subpropinquella, only my second ever.
