Some moths from last night

Clouded Brindle
Light Brocade
Green Carpet
Only my second trapping session of this very cold year, the first a few weeks ago having produced a grand total of three moths. Last night, both traps combined had 21 species, with Bee Moth and Heart and Dart being the commonest moths. Light Brocade and Clouded Brindle were the highlights. I had both in July last year, but both (particularly the former) are quite local species. Last night, my moth guru Brian Stone also recorded Light Brocade in Elton, Cambs, a first record for his garden, I believe.
