Two moths

The recent cooler nights have meant that moth-trapping can result in nil catches, but last night I caught four moths, three Angle Shades and one Autumn Green Carpet, my first and Islay's fourth. The latter is quite well-named as its main flight period is September to November, though those that survive hibernation can also be found flying in March to May.
