22nd April 2009 - part 2

A warm, sunny day and lots of moths were fluttering around in the garden. The first that I managed to net was another garden first in the form of a handsome Incurvaria masculella:

Next to appear was the more expected Esperia sulphurella:

Several of the very common Nettle-tap, Anthophila fabriciana, also appeared for the first time:

This plume moth, Amblyptilia acanthadactyla, was disturbed from near to where the trap had been overnight so had perhaps been overlooked earlier:

Finally a non-moth - several of these Woundwort Shield bugs were out sunning themselves as well:
