Signs of spring... well almost

I am plugging away with the mothtrap, but for little reward. So far this year I have managed to record three species - Winter Moth, Mottled Umber and Spring Usher. There are several species I would hope to find but the weather which swings between cold and windy is causing some frustration.

Trying to stay positive, Spring Usher is a sign of spring, and is appearing a little early this year. It is also one of my favourite moths. Here is one from last nights trap.
