This was a cold week and very wet. On 1 November, no point in the whole 24-hour period was as warm as midnight at the start.
The moths captured included several of the small oecophorid Hoplostega ochroma (Meyrick, 1886), as well as the first record for the site of Philobota cretacea Meyrick, 1884. This latter species had not been recorded from light trapping at the site.
