Scarce Bordered Straw - a migrant moth at last!

Caught my first Scarce Bordered Straw in the garden last night. A rarity in Derbyshire, although there have been years with a significant influx, the last was 2006. The moth is resident in southern Europe so could have flown over a thousand miles to get to Darley Dale. 
This has been a good year for migrant moths on the south coast and some have bred so it may have come from closer to home.
