Large Yellow Underwing

It's been a bit of an odd week, catches remain absolutely dire, had a hornet a few days ago that got really irate and was attempting to give me "the finger" with it's sting, an almost completely plain male Common Swift and this morning I got a Large yellow Underwing. Summer's over!

  1. Large YU can be out as early as April and not uncommon in May/June. I'm surprised not to have seen more already but then I can say that about all moths generally. They then aestivate over the mid summer months and reappear in number in late summer. So fingers crossed this is not heralding the end of summer and hopefully more the beginning, though I'm seeing few signs so far :(.
