This moth is a bit of a wanderer so may have got caught up in the strong southerly air movement we had yesterday or, maybe, just moved north from a known colony in and around North London.
This morning a visit to the trap proved just how lucky I had been last night: 16 moths of 14 species in total, with a possible migrant silver y only macro of note and a coleophora species that will require dissection for identification as it has very worn wings.
