Mullein Wave

A better night for the garden trap last night, one or two autumn moths appearing now.
The highlight being a Mullein Wave, not many records for this moth in the county amd so far as we can see, none last year.
The Copper Underwing photo does not look quite so obvious a line on the picture as it did in reality, not very easy taking pics whilst holding the moth I have discovered, even with a time delay on the camera.

  1. I was with a gardener whose Mulleins had been decimated by the caterpillars of this moth; I daren't ask how many survived the cull!
