It was a very cool night which resulted in only 7 moths of 4 species.  However, two were new backyard species for the year, a Nameless Pinion Moth (Lithophane innominata) in the bait trap and a Venerable Dart (Agrotis venerabilis) in the light trap.  The Nameless Pinion is a hibernator so I guess this a signal for the end of summer.  Trying not to think about that at the moment... Hoping for a warmer night tonight.
