Streaks in the Rain

Only briefly at Blashford today, just about long enough to open up the hides and check the moth trap. Despite a wet night the moth trap was quite busy, there were a lot of "November" moths, a groups of species that cannot reliably be separated by sight. There were also 2 streak, only ocassional at Blashford.
Less frequent still was a cypress carpet, these are not rare but as their caterpillars mainly eat ornamental conifers they are usually found in gardens.
