New Moths

 
One of the good things about being new to moth trapping this year is that most nights that the trap is set a few new moths are caught. Last night was one of these with new recordings for a Sharp-angled Peacock.
 
 
 
 
Also the smart, small Toadflax Pug.
 

 
As well as the Iron Prominent.
 

 
 
Migrant moths were made up of the Four-spotted Footman with the female with the spots
 

 
 
and the male without the spots!!
This moth is nationally scarce with the female in particular being rarely seen.
