Winter Moth (Operophtera brumata)
Macro no 226 for the year..can you guess what it is!
So I spoke to soon saying I would not get another specie by the end of the year.
Winter Moth has proved me wrong, I dd not get any of these last year so this is a garden first, all 4 of them.
2 more moths made it 6.
An unexpected Lesser Yellow Underwing was my latest ever record after my previous latest on 06-11-2009.
The weather continues to be rather up and down, we have had lots of fog recently followed by rain, but with mild temperatures up to 12c daytime and dropping to a minimum of 8c at night.
