Mullein Moth - a first for Beddington Farmlands

Had a nice surprise in the moth trap this morning at Beddington Farmlands (well not actually in it but on a shelf nearby)- a Mullein moth, a first for the farmlands. Also a Powdered Quaker with it and an Early Grey.

Also had a Brindled Beauty at the Old Vicarage yesterday. (We also took Jacob to Cotswold Wildlife Park- had Firecrest singing there). 

Amazing to get a new moth for the farmlands considering it has been a very cold and slow moth April- only had about five species or so.
