First 2011 outing...

...last night for the garden moth trap.

I had only just set up and turned it on within a matter of seconds our first (and only) visitor appeared.

Mottled Umber.

Ironically I didn't catch this species in the garden in 2010, so it was a nice start to the year. This is a common moth in most areas, probably due to its very widespread taste in most deciduous shrubs and trees. This is a male, the females are flightless.

The photo is poor due to the lack of light today...
