Blossom Underwing

I had another good, early spring trap at home last night. I recorded 17 species in all, but the pick of the bunch was definitely a Blossom Underwing (picture below), which is rather an uncommon species in the county.

This species is one to look out for as it's probably overlooked in amongst the more common, but very similar Small and Common Quakers - so please be alert when checking your traps.
