Finally, the downward spiral?

Looks like the October decline towards winter may have started. Cooler temperatures, higher wind speeds, bits of rain. This all meant a much smaller catch, only 14 moths of 10 species, although there was 1 newbie for me.

Epinotia sordidana was a surprise, I'd not seen much of these on other blogs. And it looked so plain that I wasn't too sure until I'd got photos of it to compare to the various websites. The others were more normal for this time of year, although Carcina quercana seemed very fresh for the time.
The rest of this week has not inspired me to risk putting the trap out, but hopefully the weekend looks a bit warmer with some more of the wet stuff so maybe....
