Not a reference to the decade that fashion forgot but to a run of three consecutive nights with over 70 species to the garden trap.
What fascinates me too about this is that it is far from the same 70+ species each night, of course there's a core of about 50 or so 'usual suspects' - Heart and Dart, Dark Arches, Common Footman, Chrysoteuchia culmella etc etc - but there is great variation on top of this.
The beauty of MapMate is that I can readily tell what has been going on and quick analysis shows that for these three species-rich, Halcyon days there have been a total of 138 species in the garden which has of course helped to push the garden year list on very nicely to 264 species (all stages).
Highlights of late include:
Four-dotted Footman (new to the garden)
Sciota adelphella (also new to the garden)
Ethmia terminella (a lifer)
