After the rain stopped, the evening remained muggy with full cloud cover and no wind. Wanting to avoid the little biting bugs at Pilmoor, I went to Sessay Wood again, this time 200m ENE of Monday's site. It was another good night with some more significant records. I had another Lobesia reliquana the 2nd VC62 record following the first at Pilmoor, just over a kilometre away.
The other exciting moths were three Eucosmomorpha albersana, which I had trapped a single in 2011 at Kilburn, and there was just one other in the previous 25 years, and only a handful before that in Yorkshire.
Others of note were five Orange Footman and a Marbled White Spot. Also of note was a distant calling Quail heard several times.
