"Last trapping of the season" pah! Yesterday saw the highest ever recorded October temperature, at 29.9C, with temperatures here apparently topping those in Athens, Los Angeles and Barcelona.

Otherwise the trap included several Large Yellow Underwings, Shuttle-shaped Darts and a Square-spot Rustic; all rather impressive for October.
