|2 Grey Shoulder-knot|
A visit to the moth trap this morning gave views of 4 March moths roosting on the sheet. However, of more interest were 2 Grey Shoulder-knot moths that were inside the trap. Amoth that hibernates and can be found through Autumn and then re-emerging in March and April. These are the moths that will lay the eggs for the next generation that will appear in Autumn. They normally hibernate in cracks in trees, especially oaks but can also be found tucked away in corners of garden sheds. This is my first record of this species in the garden; species number 254.
