Lade - warm and cloudy early on, sunny and hot later, ne 3 - Another bumper catch of moths in the garden mv with an influx of 15 Silver Ys, Scalloped Oaks, Poplar Hawk-moths, Common Emeralds and the migrant micro, Evergestis extimalis. At the Kerton Road Café a migrant Angle-striped Sallow was on a day trip from a trap on the High Weald.
