Dotted Borders are appearing on most blogs but this common moth is a rarity in my town garden having only recorded one in 4 years.
Early Moth, March Moth, Pale Brindled Beauty, Spring Usher, Mottled Umber are also hard to come by and any one of these are considered a bonus to the year list
On the other hand, Small Ranunculus and Toadflax Brocade are pretty much guaranteed annually so I guess these two alone make up for the lack of late winter/early spring geometridae.
Double-striped Pugs are very common however, and the first one of the year turned up last night.
