Slow going in Wolvercote

This is the first year that I've had full-time access to my own moth trap; and while Xander and I are both enjoying it, I'd rather hoped that near-mid-June would be producing a few catches of more than six moths...! Now, they were all lovely, but it does seem a little lowish a couple of weeks off mid-summer. Anyway, these were they:

Buff Ermine 1
Least Black Arches 1
Shuttle-shaped Dart 1
Small Magpie 1 (NFY)
Treble Lines 1
White Ermine 1

Small Magpie, 9th June

We liked the fact that the only micro we caught was about four times as big as the smallest macro... Anyway, nights are supposed to be getting warmer and cloudier later this week, so fingers crossed.
