Welcome all to 2017 and even more imporant, welcome to the moths of the new year.
Last night after quite a dull and wet day I decided that as the temperature rose to 10 degrees and expected night-time temperature wasn't supposed to get lower than 7, I thought it might be worth a punt in trying for my first moth records of 2017.
Expecting nothing at all (Which is pretty standard for my garden during the winter months) I was pleasantly surprised to find 2 moths in the trap and one on the alighted fence nearby.
3 species were observed as follows.
