Garden Moth ticks

A very uncooperative bunch of moths that proved difficult to photograph but among them were several firsts for the garden. One may be Roeslerstammia erxlebella, which has only 4 records for the vice-county before this year. But another moth'er recently started trapping a little closer to Peterborough has trapped several so far this year.

Others are The Phoenix, Double lobed, Aethes rubigana and Ebulea crocealis. Dark Umber was only the second garden record.
