Makes a change

If I'm not mistaken, a Pale Pinion joined the more expected cluster of Hebrew Characters and Quakers in this morning's eggboxes. I'm irredeemably hopeless on the small, brownish moths but I think the one below is a Small Quaker. It is certainly small. Apologies for the state of my thumb but it's my best shot at a scale provider.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon


  1. Hi Martin, always nice to see either of the Pinions. Pale Pinion seemed to do really well last autumn so it is not surprising that it is beginning to make regular appearances again now after hibernation. The other moth is indeed Small Quaker.

  2. Many thanks Dave - and I was most impressed by your expedition to the M40 compensation land the other day. I'd like to make that trip this summer. Bernwood is such a rich place. All warm wishes as ever, We got a second grandchild yesterday so life is a bit disrupted. M
