The second nights trapping was carried out with the 125 MV lamp, a much brighter light which attracted in some nice species and a lot of not so nice bitting chaps.
Again Small Marbled (Eublemma parva) was the commonest species with about 30 in and around the trap, along with 8 Menophra japygiaria and a dozen or so Vestal (Rhodometra sacraria).
A single Emerald Species Chlorissa etruscaria and 2 The Passenger (Dysgonia algira) were both found on the vegitation around the light. Four-spotted (Tyta luctuosa), Boarded Straw (Heliothis peltigera), Cresent Dart (Agrotis trux), Palpita unionalis, Stibaromacha ratella and Antigastra catalaunalis were also seen.
