Creigiau - first of 2017

The Winter GMS boxes put out on Xmas and New Year weekends produced a grand total of nothing, so I was surprised to find a Mottled Umber on the house wall last night. Must have been attracted by the light from the kitchen window as nothing else nearby. Anyway ... first moth of the year and a good month earlier than the first visitor last year (Chestnut on 04 February). Strangely, like Mark's Winter Moth, Mottled Umber was also the last moth I saw in 2016 (16 December).
