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 Moth not all that early really

My last post reported my first 4 moth species of the year on 7th - until last night I'd added no more species to the year list.  There had been another 4 Mottled Umbers and a Winter Moth on 8th and single Winter Moth, Mottled Umber and Chestnut on 10th.

I expected an 8th consecutive nil return last night as although it was a fraction milder than previous nights I didn't think it was warm enough for anything to emerge.  This Early Moth thought otherwise. Not actually all that early.

Early Moth, North Elmham, 18th January
