Off the Moth Mark

This came to a lit window last night ..

Winter Moth

Only the second time I've ever recorded a moth in the garden on January 1st (the other being an Agonopterix heracliana on 01/01/2004). Also the first time I've recorded Winter Moth in the garden January since 2002.

Nice One Mark! I think you might have peaked early........The rest of January may well be a bit of a drag on the mothing front......

HNY to you too Matt. I wouldn't be surprised if there are no more garden moths until March - but maybe I ought to try trapping a bit earlier this year.
