Moth Trap 67

I had hoped for more but just 3 moths this morning:

1 Emmelina monodactyla
1 Clouded Drab
1 Common Quaker

The clouded drab was of interest though. It took me a while to work out it was a Clouded Drab (err assuming I am correct of course), what with it having a very different colour scheme compared to the specimen a few days ago:

Clouded Drab (Orthosia inserta)

Life total: 113
Garden total: 97
2010 total species: 4
2010 total moths: 17
