.......And they've started earlier than usual. Yet another warm night early on, but a surprising dip in temp to just 3°C. Numbers were down on previous nights even though I had 2 traps out again.
This little critter was 1 of 2 pretty much identical moths found last night. When I caught it, I immediately thought it was Oak-tree due to the compact size (barely bigger than Double-striped) and pale patches beside the central black dots. However the strong white line along the trailing edge also made me think of Common.
I will leave it up to the jury of bloggers far more experienced than me to decide.
Thanks for ID confirmation from Mark & Andy.
The Teddy Bear of moths- always nice to see.
The result- 12 of 8 species-
