Moths in double figures...finally

Trap out at the Fen last night saw 35 moths of 8 species. All pretty standard for the time of the year but good to get multiple species.

5 March Moth
3 Common quaker
9 small quaker
8 Hebrew charactor
5 Oak beauty
1 Clouded drab
1 Dotted border
3 Engrailed

Also had a small orangy moth flying around in the workshop yard yesterday in the sunshine, which I think must have been an orange underwing, a slight surprise seeing as it may be a first for the reserve.
