Red letter day

The moth trap held a new species for us in the Strettons this morning. This Red Chestnut, a common spring moth, but like many they have been in short supply due to the weather. It apparently emerges on the first warm days of the spring, perhaps it got bored of waiting! In the trap there was also a Chestnut and a Mottled Grey.
