Winter moths at Beddington Farmlands

Here's a few moths from the Beddington obs trap from late November to now. Been regular Winter moths and November moth aggs and there were five species yesterday night so despite being the depths of the winter, there are indeed a limited but perhaps surprising year round selection of moths on the wing.

 Brick (I think) 
 Yellow-lined Quaker 
 Winter moth agg 
 Mottled Umbers (above and below)- quite a variable species 

Brown-spot Flat-body Agonopterix alstromeriana
 Common Plume Moth Emmelina monodactyla
 Acleris ferrugana/notana (above and below) 

A Herald at Gillians- another one in addition to the 26 we found hibernating in the moth tunnel
