Angle Shades Moth– a distinctive, macro moth (wingspan 50mm) which can be seen in gardens throughout the UK and Europe, the bright green caterpillar feeding on herbaceous plants and the adult even flying in daytime sometimes. This one, looking typically like a dried autumn leaf, was one of very few species drawn to my moth trap down south last night. They raise several generations in a season but this one could have migrated as an adult from Europe. Conditions: Mostly cloudy. Temperature: Max 16- Min: 12C
