Acleris umbrana, Barry, 21st July

Acleris umbrana appears to have made it back into the county... This was found on the side of the trap and my micro blindness initially put it down as something Acleris hastiana-esque until Ben Sale on the micro forum suggested umbrana which seemed to fit.

Checking on the website though I saw only the one record in 1907! But there it was, scale tufts and all.

Also nice to see slap bang on the middle of the trap rain cover after the thunderstorm this morning one of two of the first Jersey Tigers this year:
