Super day - again. Had a lunchtime walk to visit the moth trap and to look for some butterflies. A range of nice moths was seen including some brought in by Andy from his trap. They included Poplar and Elephant Hawks, Large and Common Emeralds, Blackneck, Buff Arches and, best of all, White Satin (last seen here in 1988) and Garden Tiger - another rarity. Among the butterflies we saw Small Tortoiseshell, Large White, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown, Ringlet.
