Here is Stuart's report: "Pretty? Garish? Or just plain wacky? Buff Arches was quite literally the stand-out moth from this week’s catch. Like Clay Triple-lines from Week 3, this species’ UK distribution is very close to its northern extreme here in Durham – records extend into Northumberland but its range currently falls short of the border with Scotland.
Further highlights include the ‘cuddly’ Drinker and the Dark Spectacle – whose name is derived from the shape on the thorax, which, when viewed head-on, resembles a pair of Biggles-like flying-goggles. Mottled Beauty was freshly-emerged and recorded in good numbers, and Barred Red was a new species for me. Also, I hit the 100 species mark this week!"
