Brown-veined Wainscot

Brown-veined Wainscot - both forms trapped in good numbers on the River Otter last night, with Nick. The foodplant is Common Reed which is why neither Nick nor I has recorded it as a garden moth. Always lovely to see a new species and to get both colour forms was a bonus. Some nice variety last night included Southern Wainscot, Dark Spectacle, Bulrush Veneer (Calamatropha paludella), White Ermine and Dun-bar. Read Nick's account of the evening here.
