Two More Hibernators

We had a very productive catch last night from three traps with a total of 21 macro and five micro species.  Included in these were the two over-wintering moths - Red Sword-grass and this rather green Red-green Carpet together with our first  Double-striped Pug of the season.  Apologies for the out of focus wing but it escaped into the kitchen before I could remove it for a proper photo shot.
