Lazy mothing!

 I put my LED trap out last night, for a small yield, of which the most interesting was a pristine Bordered Beauty (and a couple of hornets).

However, I had recently noticed evidence of moths being eaten in a small barn, presumably by bats. So I check the detritus there from time to time.

Scarce Silver-lines

Usually the remains are of Large Yellow Underwings, Dark Arches and Silver-Y, but last night's was a bit special, with parts of two Scarce Silver-lines. I guess they still count as new to the garden list, even deceased! Hopefully I may see a live one some day.
