Hardy Moths

Not at all surprising because the temperature had dipped below freezing before midnight, but just two very hardy moths came to last night's garden actinic trap here, the Early Grey and Hebrew Character shown below.  With another frost forecast for tonight I might give the trap a rest, which will be the first occasion that's happened since mid-February.

While cutting back some honeysuckle yesterday I disturbed a smart female Esperia sulphurella.  The moth is a regular here, presumably thanks to two or three piles of decaying logs left around the garden.
