Rye harbour Moths

Still very poor moth-wise for the time of year, but this was my best morning yet of 2017, with around 20 species. Firsts for the year included, yellow belle, cinnabar and nutmeg, with the commonest species being shears and light brown apple moth, both with two individuals each!Highlights were star-wort, an uncommon coastal moth with larvae that feed largely on sea aster, and eyed hawk moth and cream-spot tiget moth (below), not rarities by any means but always good to see just for 'wow' value!
