Feathered Thorn

Still getting a few moths here in Milton Keynes, mostly December Moths, Epiphyas postvittana, Winter moth and Feathered Thorn. A couple of Mottled Umber and Brick too and a surprise Double-striped Pug last Saturday (22nd). Last night's Feathered Thorn had me confused for a moment, not seen one like this before, is it unusual?

  1. Hi Darren, that's a fairly typical female. They do look slightly "different" and don't tend to come to light anywhere near as frequently as the males.

  2. Thanks Dave, Just goes to show you can be mothing for years and still find common things that you haven't seen before.
