Some local woodland trapping last night didn't produce all that much although five examples of Buff Footman after an absence of several weeks was a little unusual and suggestive of a second brood (Marc Botham and I had one on 23rd October last year). Epinotia trigonella, Vapourer and Small Wainscot were nice to see amongst the more regular species, while the only moth to get into double figures was Eudonia truncicolella which seems to be appearing everywhere that I trap at the moment. For the benefit of Mark Griffiths (see below) I've just taken a quick happy-snap of one of the Small Wainscots, admittedly a rather heavily marked example.
