24th April 2013 ... What's that coming over the hill ... Pt 2

.... is it a mompha ?

Yes it is this time.
Found during the daytime on the patio door window.

Mompha subbistrigella ...

892 ... Mompha subbistrigella ... Garden Cosmet

It was a calm, warm night last night, with low level cloud blocking out the full moon.
Minimum temperature was 10.6 deg C but light rain up until late evening was a nuisance.
A year first Spectacle was earlier than expected but the rest of the catch were the usual batch.
