Migrant moths

Lots of new for the year, several new for the garden and a pile of migrants.

Broom Moth, a likely migrant and new for the garden, one yesterday and two today.

Ancylis badiana, new for the year, indeed didn't get one last year.

Sandy Carpet, catching a few now.

Shears, NFY.

 Angle Shades, often a migrant.

One of two Broom Moth today.

Glaucous Shears, I struggled with the worn one at the top, but got the id in the end with a good bit of help, however, once put with the fresh one it seems obvious. Likely migrants again. I've regularly been catching Dark Sword-grass, a known migrant, three one night.

 Pebble Prominent is new for garden - today, x2.

Poplar Hawk, always popular.

Narrow-winged Pug, very fresh NFY.

 Common Pug possibly, that won't be going in iRecord though.

 Spectacle, NFY.

Here's looking at you, kid.

That's the moths done but I've still got a Hemipteran, a sawfly and a few beetles awaiting my attentions, think I'll go birding.... it's a lot easier.
