The Sallow

Tonight was quiet and there didn't appear to be a lot of moths about but there were more than expected in the trap including one new species for my garden. I'd been reading the latest Essex Moths blog(http://bensale-essexmoths.blogspot.com/) in which Ben mentions that Sallow moths are amongst his favourites and that we should be expecting to see more of them in the coming weeks as Autumn draws closer then as if by magic I got my first example of 'The Sallow' and he's not wrong about their beauty!.
The trap was out from 8:45pm to 3:15am
