The clear skies and cold temperatures (starting at 11°C and dropping to 8°C) spoilt this event.
Three Skinner Moth Traps had been set up in different areas in a large garden.
Very few moths were found at repeated inspections, but at some point during the night there was some activity.
No fewer than 41 Lunar Underwings were found in the traps in the morning. There were only seven moth species, with the highlights being an Autumnal Rustic and the uncommon Deep-brown Dart.
