Glaucous Shears

I trapped half under cover two nights ago and was rewarded with 3 Scalloped Hazel, a Yellow-barred Brindle and a particularly pleasing Glaucous Shears. Plus 9 other species.
The previous nights catch included a spectacular Purple Bar ( that took one look at me and hurtled skywards) and the ever wonderful Spectacle.
 A rather grumpy looking Spectacle, they just make me smile!

  1. Glaucous Shears: good moth, well done Jane. Only 37 records before this in the County.

  4. PS - your spectacle moth looks a bit squint - before release I`d take him to the opticians if I were you!
