Rye Harbour Moths

It's always a slow start moth-wise at Rye Harbour, so it was good to get my first individuals of the year this morning. First out of the trap was this early thorn, immediately identifiable from other thorns by its resting posture, with wings upright and together like a butterfly. It's a common species but I don't get a huge number here, just the odd single thoughout the year. Not much else to report this morning, with a hebrew character and two early grey the only other moths, but the trap did contain my first great silver water beetle of the year, always good to see.
