A diary of my mothing activity covering highlights and photos from my moth trapping activities. Mainly Norfolk (UK), occasionally beyond. I may mention other wildlife sightings here, especially insects, but for birds see my birding diary.

Early Common Quaker

Sunday night saw Pale Brindled Beauty and Early Moth again - I wondered if the Pale Brindled Beauty was the same individual as the previous night as it was similarly marked.  

Monday night was a nil return but Tuesday evening produced another Early Moth. As I went through the trap this morning I discovered a Common Quaker lurking beneath the rim.  I hadn't been expecting that, 2.5 weeks earlier than my previous earliest, but there are a few records in the Norfolk database for early February.

Common Quaker, North Elmham, 10th February
