Old Lady (Mormo maura).

Old Lady (Mormo maura).
I was excited to find this large moth [70mm wing span] in my trap this morning - it's the first I've recorded here! Several people in the Swindon area have recorded good numbers of these just lately - they must be having a good year. Maybe I'll try some sugaring in the garden too as this species usually comes more readily to sugar than light....Liden, Swindon, Wiltshire, UK. 2014-09-06.
