Pine Beauty.

With a milder night promised last night I put the moth trap out for the third time this year. Once again the most numerous moth was the Early Grey with Hebrew Character just behind. The best looking moth of the day was the Pine Beauty, a moth I haven't had before. Another good moth was the Lesser Swallow Prominent as well as a couple of Powdered Quaker.

It was then out for a short time to help Nigel find a Marbled White larva. On the way to meeting him I was pleased to see my first Wall Brown adult of the year. Seven Marbled White larva were then found including one brown form as well as several day flying moths with 3 Burnet Companions and a Pyrausta Ostrinalis.
