Away from Home, Part II
And YES! There is a Part II, following on from the entry just below. Mum has surfaced and together we have inspected about 70 moths including these - a Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing scrutinising us in return (above; I like his skullcap, or is it a Beatle fringe going ever so slightly grey, like mine?) Note the nice green too; you often miss that when seeing 'boring brown' moths like this from above.
Then we've a Snout showing the reason for its name (sorry about the focus, which preferred the leading edge of the eggbox) and a Wainscot, one of about half-a-dozen. On the vaguely scientific front, none of the catch was different from the usuals at home. So it looks as though I need to venture further afield for that.
