Angle Shades in record moth count

A record for December at least, I caught 35 moths of 5 species last night. It was a balmy 7 Centigrade when I checked the trap at 06:30 this morning. Mottled Umber accounted for 29 with single Scarce Umber, 2 Winter Moth, 2 December Moth and a single Angle Shades which although not uncommon is a striking looking moth. Mainly seen in the summer moths I have caught adults in every month of the year.
