Recent moths in Lower Stondon

A couple of recent moths from Lower Stondon are illustrated below.
first is an Oak Beauty caught in our garden trap on 30th March.
Secondly I found a female of the micro moth Diurnea fagella on a gatepost in the village this afternoon. Interestingly, the female of this species has very short stunted wings - a photo of a male for comparison is underneath. Photos by Andy Banthorpe
