Busy...

14 degrees, the busiest night of the year so far. Two new species for me - 1358  Evergestis pallidata and 1876  Small Yellow Wave (Hydrelia flammeolaria). Later after a time in the fridge I tried to get some pics and totally fluffed the Wave, it flying off without so much as a snap of it. I hate it when 'firsts' go unrecorded for posterity : (
