Update from TM0025

It feels like a very long time since I last posted and updated my list. I’ve had the good fortune to spend some time in Spain and in Denmark, so my focus has been a little elsewhere. Funnily enough, while I was away I was thinking of what might be on my patch at home (not something that has bothered me much in the past). My total has more than doubled, but I am a long way behind. I’m still without a mothtrap, so my moth numbers remain low. I have included a few photographs of varying quality.

I have recently had a few more visit the house, and comparison with on-line photographs confirms the ID. I suspect that eggs of this moth may have arrived inadvertently in a bag of bird seed.)
