Moth Trap 11

4 moths this morning

1 Heart and Dart
1 Puss Moth - quite a bit smaller than the previous one
2 Swallow Prominent (new !)

Swallow Prominent (Pheosia tremula)

Swallow Prominant (Pheosia tremula)

This picture doesn't do this moth justice - it is highly attractive. Very pleased with that.

Today marked the second day with no examples of Common Quaker (in contrast to all my previous sessions). Maybe that's it for this species this year.
