First half of September

Rather tedious with a list for each night that was effectively the same, dominated by common brown stuff though in good numbers, with the monotony broken with a selection of my regular carpets (Green, Garden, Common and Common Marbled).
The only real highlight was a garden first, Feathered Gothic, which was trapped on 4th and 6th... and was brown.
 Feathered Gothic - garden first, trapped 4th and 6th

Silver Y - numerous this year, trapped on majority of nights in August and still around on 15th Sept

Old Lady - a common visitor throughout August and September

Toadflax Pug - tiny beastie, one on 2nd Sept was third for garden, previous two in July 2011 and 2012

A garden tick to end August

To end the month, macro number 240 for the garden was a nice surprise. 

Maidens Blush - new for garden 31st August

Mouse - regularly found running around the bottom of the trap in August and September

Yellow Shell - very common in the garden but this one was very nicely marked
