Wow quite a list, and interesting to compare with the conditions down in the bottom of the valley in Hebden Bridge where I have had good nubers all week but only 2 Clouded Borders and a Peppered moth last night!

You did well to miss those midges Winston, I was bitten in places I didn't know existed, not to mention swallowing plenty. Still 14 new macros and 5 new micros (whatever they are) more than made up for it.So thanks to Andy for organising the event - can we do the next NMN in January when there aren't any midges around ;-)

Good night and very interesting on the moth front - many more than I had at home which means that the midges were almost worth it!! lol will remember midge net and flamethrower for next year I think! :-)
