I rarely trap on weekdays due to college the next day but on Wednesday evening I decided to leave the trap out over night.
This Streamer was a nice catch - a great looking moth.
...and this Chestnut
...and finally this Clouded Drab were the highlights.

Yellow-barred Brindle - A lovely freshly emerged individual, the bright green fades quite quickly. Classified as local in distribution.
Double-striped Pug - I'm fairly sure that these are both this species but as always will be happily corrected.

'This Broom-tip was trapped at Biddenden on 24 April 2008. Classified as Nationally Scarce B it was a little unexpected. It had probably wandered from nearby Hemsted Forest - the nearest heath type habitat.'
'A regular moth at Biddenden and Sissinghurst during March and April.' Thanks to Steve Broyd for the images.
Scarce Prominent - From UKMoths "Inhabiting mature woodland, this local species has a scattered distribution from the south-east of England, through parts of northern England, and in central Scotland and western Ireland."
Many thanks to Steve, Alan and Peter at Sissinghurst Castle.
