Another Small Brindled Beauty

Thanks to Ina's recent blog we now realise that the rather small Brindled Beauty that we caught in our garden trap two nights ago was indeed a Small Brindled Beauty.  We discounted it after some discussion as we thought it was restricted to southern regions but with hindsight now it ticked all the boxes.  The rest of our catch included Dotted Border, Spring Usher, Pale Brindled Beauty and two slightly early moths - Early Grey and Mottled Grey, the latter unfortunately could only be photographed posthumously!   The only micro was Tortricodes alternella.
