Early Thorn

Both Early Thorn (above) and Twin-spotted Quaker were new species for the year this morning, courtesy of the back garden MV. The former species seems to me a bit too frail for a moth that is on the wing so early in the year. The current chilly nights are, regardless of the temperature, producing enough moths to make it all worth while, although I can recall blank traps in early May. I'm not going to get carried away yet!

That's gloating!

Just a Common Quaker and a Small Quaker so far tonight.
