Immigrant in Aylmerton

Had the moth trap on for a few hours last night and amongst the many Setaceous Hebrew Characters and the full compliment of Yellow Underwings was this fairly unspectacular but 'different' moth which turned out to be a Scarce Bordered Straw*, an immigrant from southern europe which turns up regularly in small numbers in Britain. Not shown here is the broad dark trailing edge to the hind wing which was quite distinct. GYL 163
