Creigiau - 18 November

Box out in the garden last night. 'Twas 8C when I left it at midnight, but as the skies cleared the temperature bottomed out at 3.2C. Had 6 moths of 5 species - December Moth (2), Mottled Umber & Yellow-line Quaker and also my first ever Satellite.

The last one, on first sight, I thought was Pale Brindled Beauty and then I remembered that it was November! But ... Waring & Townsend say that it can occasionally be found in November & December so I'm sticking with my original ID.
