Things warmed up over the next couple of nights so another Chestnut (or perhaps the same one) Friday night was less of a surpise. Saturday night (28th) produced my latest ever Winter Moth and an Early Moth. Another Early Moth on 30th before things improved in February.
Last Wednesday (1st Feb) was the best night so far this year with 5 species including my second ever Viburnum Button Acleris schalleriana.

Also new for the year was this Spring Usher.

A Mottled Umber was my latest ever - normally they've stopped flying by now. Apart from a little damage to the tip of its left wing it was pretty fresh.

There was also an Early Moth and 2 Chestnuts, and the following night there was only Early Moth and 3 Chestnuts. A single Chestnut on Friday night. Saturday night produced my first Dotted Border of the year and 2 Early Moths.

Last night there was just one Chestnut again.
