Bloxworth Snout

This was a moth I found walking home from the Post Office one day, just up the street from our house. It is a Red Data Book Species and on the increase around most south coastal counties. Finding this one at this time of year suggests it over wintered and is a resident rather than a migrant.
The wet mild winter seems to have helped this species because we had several Sussex reports this year.

Thanks Maria, I was going to the PO when I spotted it, had to send my package, get home in a hurry and hope it was still there! It was with my pot now I brought it a few houses down, to my house to photograph it.
