There were clearly other moths but not many of the insects were being very helpful,flying immediately when approached.
The first moth seen was the Cinnabar one of those moths you love to hate. They are gorgeous but you have to be a contortionist to take a photo of one.
Most of the moths scarpered very quickly when I looked at 6am this morning but I have recorded a couple of moths,1 I have before and the other a newby.
You have seen this one before which is the Plutella porrectella so its two up for my Sweet Rocket Hesperis matronalis. Guess the Silver Y will be feeding on them next. Notice the black marks on the antennae and the green eyes.
