3 May 2013 - The Larches, KWT Reserve near Detling, Kent

The best catch of the year so far, with 94 moths of 30 speacies being a consiberable hike in the species being recorded.

Of particular interest, to me at least, was this Pinion spp. The first images shows just how dark it was - the second image is over-exposed.

Whilst I had been thinking Tawny Pinion, I'm now firmly of the opinion that this is, indeed, the dark form of Pale Pinion.  Comments would be very much appreciated.

Fantastic views of a Hobby this evening as I waited at traffic lights. Nice.
