Fourth and final post of the evening.
I ran the garden traps last night for the first time in about a week. Conditions were not great, and there was light rain by early morning. Overall catch was a very modest 93 of 35sp (125W MV 40 of 22, 80W actinic 53 of 21).

I've potted a couple for photos, but they'll have to wait. It's raining heavily here now so no trapping tonight. Flaming June my arse!
