Rye Harbour MOths

I've not ran my moth trap much recently, what with being away for a week and starting on the grassland cutting, so it was nice to have something to look at this morning. The catch consisted mostly of setaceous hebrew character and square-spot rustic, with migrants including rush veneer, rusty-dot pearl and large yellow underwing. I also had a couple of indicators of the advancing year with my first frosted orange and feathered gothic of the year. Highlights were this dusky thorn which was perched on the outside of the trap first thing, and l-album wainscot an uncommon species of brackish ditches which I catch most years (though this was my first for 2017).
