Moths Fourteenth-Fifteenth

Gone a little quiet, with the occasional quality moth to liven up proceedings. White-shouldered House Moth was new for the year, as was White Ermine; always a looker White Ermine hence the image below. A single Alder Moth potted outside the trap on 15th is the second this year and the second earliest Northumberland record after Tim Sexton had one in his Tynemouth garden on 8th. On the micro front Epiblema cynosbatella was new for the garden.

 White Ermine - the Marilyn Monroe of moths!

That Alder is like one of Ipins ringing pics. Did you go at it with a rolled up chronicle first :)
