This Small Phoenix has certainly 'risen from the flames'

With the temperature hovering around 0c. when I went to check my trap last night I wasn't really expecting much (if anything at all), so imagine my surprise when I noticed a Small Phoenix (photo below) on the side of our porch. The latest this species has ever been recorded in Montgomeryshire is the 31st October, so this is nearly six weeks later than that - quite remarkable.



  1. An early Christmas present Peter! Just shows the moth world is full of surprises - hope January is equally so, and that some of us can meet your January challenge for once!
