Lesser Cream Wave

Recent moth trapping sessions in the garden have produced a few new records including this pale wave species. Purple Throrn is just a great moth. A few turn up every year but this year the first generation in spring did not appear so it has been nice to get a few of the second generation in summer.

Ruddy Carpet was another garden first. A rather attractive moth when fresh, unfortunately this one turned up on a night of heavy rain and as a consequence is well past its best unfortunately.
