Early Moth is hardly one of the most exciting moths to look at, but the main flight period is January and February and the species never seems to appear in any great numbers, so if you want to see it now is the time to keep your eyes open. It comes readily to light but is just as likely to appear at a lit window as it is in the moth trap. This one came to the actinic light in the garden last night, the only moth to do so.
