  1. That is early for Brown silver-line. The previous earliest I can find for VC46 is 5th April and there are few records before 20th April.

    1. Thanks for the info., Tony. I had 2 surprises waiting next to my trap this morning - one was this moth and the other was a big ginger cat! I've added you as determiner on this record and on the Water Carpet record.

  2. I like the black background Sarah. It sets it off very well.

    1. Thanks, David. I left the moth in the pot to photograph it (hence all the scratches in the photo) but I put the pot against a black card.
