I certainly didn't expect to get a new moth this early in the year, so very happy with that! Acleris schalleriana has two generations, one in summer which seems to be responsible for all of the dated Norfolk records, and one in autumn to spring that presumably hibernates through most winters. It seems to be fairly scarce (said to be rare but undoubtedly under-recorded) with no records in the Norfolk database yet for the whole of last year.

There was one moth in the trap itself, my first Chestnut of the year. And I didn't expect there to be any moths last night! Always worth putting the trap out just in case...

This Harlequin ladybird has been hibernating in my study but woke up this morning.
