See, I'm not at the stage of learning moths. Its something to keep the interest going when there are no birds - hence this is the first year I've trapped in April/May. I look at what comes into the trap and if its repeated often enough I get the hang of it eventually.
Anyway, just three this morning (and two May Bugs):
Treble Lines - year tick
May Highflyer - year tick, not photographed previously
Better than nothing, two for the year one a photo-tick.
My big worry at the moment is I keep thinking about the bee field guide....
