A few moths at last…

There were just 4 moths of 3 species in the light trap last night.  3 were Speckled Green Fruitworm (Orthosia hibisci) moths and one was a Gooseberry Stretchia (Stretchia muricina).  Gooseberry Stretchia is a medium sized noctuid that I usually see in spring.  The other photograph is of a Small Engrailed Moth (Ectropis crepuscularia) that I found while walking around the Weaselhead area of Glenmore reservoir.
