Here kitty kitty...

This moth was in a catch of 256 moths of 68 species this morning. Its a Sallow Kitten. Not too uncommon really but its a first for me in 5 years regular trapping in the garden. Its one that has been on my 'must see' list from the start. This one is a little worn, but a great addition regardless...It is about 28th record for VC68. In Northumberland, this species is only caught in single figures each year on average, so maybe the wait was to be expected.

What can I hope for next? How about Alder Moth?
