Scarce Umber

My first Scarce Umber of the season came to the garden trap last night.  Also caught were Agonopterix heracliana (1), Blastobasis lacticolella (2), Nomophila noctuella/Rush Veneer (1), Red-green Carpet (1), Spruce Carpet (1), November Moth agg (4), Feathered Thorn (1), Large Yellow Underwing (3), Setaceous Hebrew Character (1), Sprawler (1), Grey Shoulder-knot (1), Green-brindled Crescent (2), Satellite (1), Dark Chestnut (1), Red-line Quaker (4), Yellow-line Quaker (1), Beaded Chestnut (5) & Sallow (1).  Another Pale Pinion had been amongst a far smaller collection of moths (just 8 individuals of 7 species) which came to the trap during the previous night's thick fog.
