Cors Fochno moths

A couple of actinic lights near birches last night, produced nearly 100 moths. Not all were in side the traps. A quick look at a silver birch trunk revealed nothing, but closer inspection found a Red sword-grass, 3 Engrailed, Early grey, Double-striped pug, Yellow horned and Diurnea flagella. Some of the photos demonstrate this amazing camouflage. We had our first Early tooth-striped for the year, a Herald, Powdered quaker, and Lesser swallow prominent which is the earliest county record by 5 days.
