Just a Few New Moths

The moth trap has been deployed on a couple of occasions this last week and six 'new for the garden' moths caught, those being, Marbled White Spot, Brown-tail (neither of these two photographed because they escaped, the Brown-tail is at large somewhere in my kitchen though so I might be able to re-catch it later when it gets dark), Scallop Shell, Barred Red, Large Emerald and Cream-bordered Green Pea ( a nice scarce species for a change).

A very small moth only about a centimetre long. Its quite nice close up....
