Two new Fairlight garden moths

Moth trapping has been a bit boring of late, with just a few common species. However the cloudy conditions last night resulted in a much more varied catch. As well as the usual suspects-Lunar Underwings and a Large Yellow Underwing, there were singles of Red-Green Carpet, Barred Sallow and Large Wainscot, all common nationally but the last two were garden firsts. Its a long time since I added two macro-moths to the list in one day.

The photo of the Barred Sallow is a trifle soft as it was vibrating in preperation for take off.
