Had a session last night with my spare trap at my son's in Dyserth and managed to catch a new moth for me, ypsolopha sequella, quite a smart micro and apparently only the eighth record for Denbighshire.

Above is a selection of moths I caught last night. Is Pearly Underwing a common immigrant in North Wales? Also any tips on separating Marbled Carpets would be good :-)
