Red Kite

First reasonable moth catch of the year last night. The totals were:
1930 Oak Beauty (Biston strataria) 2
1934 Dotted Border (Agriopis marginaria) 2
2182 Small Quaker (Orthosia cruda) 6
2187 Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi) 17
2188 Clouded Drab (Orthosia incerta) 4
2190 Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica) 3
1546 Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) 1

Late in the day the sun came out and provided the opportunity for this shot. I hope better will be possible as a pair have settled very close to home and are often low over the garden.
