Spring Moths

Last night was the first (successful) outing of the year for the moth trap, on Bun's garden not mine, because I shouldn't think there's much in the way of moth activity in the concrete jungle of Seaton seafront yet. Anyway eight moths of four species were caught and seeing as we didn't start moth trapping until fairly late last season they were all new ones for us. They were, in order of increasing loveliness, Common Quaker, Hebrew Charecter, Grey Shoulder-knot and Oak Beauty.

Grey Shoulder-knot

Oak Beauty.
I was especially hoping to catch one of these gorgeous beasts.
