First of the year

Pale brindled Beauty

Managed to get home from work just before dusk this evening to the sight of the local Barn Owl quartering the cattle meadow opposite the house, ghosting silently up and down hunting for prey. Caught the first moth of the year at light tonight, a fine Pale brindled Beauty. A 'lifer' for me ( didnt start 'doing' moths until last October!) this is a common moth and is one of the earliest to be on the wing.
