Moths- still in the game

Not a bad selection of moths last night following a few cold and blank evenings. Feathered Thorn (a first for me), Barred Sallow, a few winter moth agg, Black Rustic, 6 Light Brown Apple Moths, Parsnip Moth, Large Yellow Underwing, Red-green Carpet, three Monopsis crociapitella , Tachstolya acroxantha, Double-striped Pug and Blastobasis lactiotella.

Got a load of Harlequin Ladybirds roosting by the trap now.  Had a hoverfly in the garden yesterday too- looked like Eupeodes luniger.

Can't help with the fly, but the leaf mine is Stigmella aceris.

Cheers Billy,
the third record for us. New for me. Presume under-recorded.
