Migrants at Galley!!

Haven't posted here for ages but thought I'd share a snap of one of two white-speck moths that were in the trap on Thursday morning. They are listed as scarce immigrants here in Ireland but have been recorded all around the coastline.  Nearly put them down as clay but checked the dates (would be late for clay) and studied them a little harder, before realising what they were. Also had c. 11 vestals in and around the trap - its been good conditions for them recently, with 66 trapped on tues night locally.
