That old Chestnut

There were a couple of old favourites in the mothtrap last night.  For the first time I set both the MV Robinson and the Actinic Heath, and the Actinic Heath won with my first two noctuids of the year (in adult form). The first was this Chestnut, a common species for me and one I expect to record several of this year.


Second up was this Satellite. Though not in the best of shape, it is still one of my favourite moths. This individual had the orange rather than white planet and satellite makings.
