One of the more common migrants has been The Vestal (Rhodometra sacraria) which have shown dramatically varied coloured wing stripes.
A solitary, tiny Small Marbled (Eublemma parva) was a welcome rarer visitor and with a wingspan of little more than 15mm is yet another miraculous example of a tiny creature travelling hundreds of miles.
Several Scarce Bordered Straw (Helicoverpa armigera) have also been recorded most nights together with other more common migratory moth species.
Hummingbird Hawk-moth (Macroglossum stellatarum) are normally seen hovering at flowers during the day but are occassionally attracted to light and look very different when seen motionless.
