Is it summer?

No, probably not, but a few swallows and the sunshine might suggest otherwise. At least some decent weather is encouraging a few new moths to emerge.

During the day, I found an Incurvaria masculella hiding under a leaf, first for the year.

Last night's catch included a new species for my garden.

1 x Early Thorn
1 x Twenty-plume Moth
2 x Common Quaker
1 x Lunar Marbled Brown
3 x Nut-tree Tussock (including one of a very dark form I've not seen before...)
1 x Emmelina monodactyla
1 x Double-striped Pug
1 x Hebrew Character
2 x Early Grey

Lunar Marbled Brown*

*flew away before I could get a decent pic :(
