However, a very large but worn moth was found and identified as a pale oak beauty, a new moth for parish records. Although worn it showed enough to be identified, both by size and by the patterning of the antennae.
Another unusual moth (for the garden, not Herts) came in the form of a small, well marked moth: a short cloaked moth.
