The First Moth of the Year!

I disturbed this Agonopterix heracliana from hibernation in my potting shed yesterday.  And yes, it's the first moth I've seen this year, on February 23rd!

I have been prepared to put a trap out but suitable conditions have yet to arrive.


  1. Way ahead of you, Chris: I've had 3 of those and a Brown House-moth!

  2. I need to try harder, Steve. However, I did find a Parsnip Moth in the same place this afternoon, so my year's tally has doubled!
