Hi Ron,

That sounds great. I'm increasingly tempted to do the same thing! It looks like mothing weather in Ayrshire might be respectable over the next couple of nights. I hope your first macro of the year will make an appearance soon.

Hi Ron,

I caught Bramble Shoot last year and it took me a bit of time to ID it using S&P Micromoths. Their illustration shows it side on like your first photo, but actually its more easily ID'd from on overhead illustration like your second shot.

Well done,

Alistair.

Hi Ron,

your unID'd moth from 28th May - I reckon it is a Light Brown Apple - a female. Larger size and significantly different pattern from male.
