Lee Mount

Not  a lot doing last night when I put the trap on - it was quite windy then it  settled down again about 11:00 so left the light on until midnight but not a lot else turned up.

The one below was a new one for us and suspect it's a Clouded Silver ?

Brimstone Moth x 1
Twenty-plume Moths x 7 - mainly on the Honeysuckle

Just a thought could it be a Clouded Silver ?

Hello David Just seen your comment at the bottom subject to the input of others I think it is a Clouded Silver larval plant hawthorn (Crataegus) and blackthorn (Prunus spinosa), amongst other trees.70.280 BF1958
Clouded Silver Lomographa temerata

Thanks Colin. I always find new moths tricky even though some look obvious - there are always similar ones once looking at the books so I proceed with caution.
It's s big bonus when they stay still to photograph otherwise it would be nearly impossible to describe. I guess that's why in former years they were caught and died / displayed. Pleased it's not like that now.
