Watch out for that tricky Blossom Underwing!

One of our spring species which often gets overlooked is the Blossom Underwing, as it rests in a similar posture and can look rather like any one of the numerous Small Quakers which we get in our traps at this time of year. I recorded the one pictured below last night, although I must say that this particular specimen is rather well marked, but this usually isn't the case.

So keep your eyes peeled, as it's not a common species, but they are on the wing now.
