I've set an MV Skinner each night we've been here, and amongst the plethora of attractive Red-line Quakers, I struck (rather modest admittedly) migrant gold. A Dark Sword-grass was a welcome addition to our moth list amongst commoner migrants such as Silver Y.
Also present in the trap were some striking Canary-shouldered Thorns, a dashing Green-brindled Crescent, a sprinkling of Lunar Underwings, some surely unseasonable Angle Shades and this rather winsome pair - Large and Small Wainscot. It certainly makes a change from the usual London fodder of Tree-lichen Beauties and Square-spot Rustics.

One of the up-sides of getting up relatively early to turn off the trap is witnessing the first fringes of dawn over the castle. I have to report I did go back to bed.
