Another newbie

It was much colder and windier tonight so I only put the trap out till 2:15am, I'm going to visit Attenborough nature reserve tomorrow so I thought an earlier night might be a good idea so we can get and earlier start. The weather conditions and the early finish meant I didn't get very many moths in the trap but I did get something new for my garden so it was a good night!. I'm not sure what it is but I'm sure someone will tell me....please!!.
The trap was out from 8pm to 2:15am

  1. Hi Ian
    Pale Mottled Willow is your Moth

    I think the Moth in your previous post is Canary-Shouldered.
