New moth record for Linacre

I was down at Linacre this evening to refill the feeders in time for ringing on Saturday. On the walk down to the feeding station I disturbed a few butterflies and moths, including a new moth species for me at Linacre; Light Emerald (details here).

Unfortunately I didn't get  a photo tonight, so here's one  that I took in my garden back in 2014. Sorry about the lid underneath the moth!

Light Emerald

As well as this moth, I also recorded 6 Ringlets (my first Linacre record for 2016), 2 Meadow Browns and a single Silver-ground Carpet (also my first Linacre record in 2016). See link on the UK Moths website here for pictures and details of this moth.
