Canary-shouldered Thorn

When I was sorting out the moth trap this morning I nearly missed this Canary-shouldered Thorn, a fantastic looking moth. I thought it was a honeysuckle flower that had fallen off the bush next to the trap. For a Thorn it was surprisingly happy to sit and have its photo taken. Other interesting moths included 2 more L-album Wainscot, this time I managed to improve on my other photo effort with this moth. Mallow, Autumnal Rustic and feathered Brindle were all new moths for the trap.

On the fence near the trap was a real surprise, the rare micro moth
