In all my years of trapping, I have never got tired of the Spectacled Moth and here it is again with its false eyes so beguiling positioned above its scarcely visible real ones. Coupled with its little crest, they make it a memorable sight in the moth trap and I am delighted to welcome my first of this slow and largely unexciting year.
