Scarce visitor to the garden
No interactions present.
Must be where you live - these are 10 a penny here on the Surrey heathland. On the other hand you've got several that I just never seem to see
Pocklington is a nice, very small rural town, but there is little decent woodland nearby. We have lots of rough farmland, and so plenty of farmland birds like Tree Sparrows, for example; but any unusual moths which I pick up are usually strays from the local wetland reedbeds or the local FC plantation.

Oh how I'd love to have reed-beds nearby! I find it fascinating as I go through my moths that I get excited by some species that I've caught for the first time in years, then the books tell me they are common - so much depends on the locality - we have heathland & suburbia. The other thing I've noticed is that many species I trapped as a kid (I've been trapping on & off for well over 40 years) have simply vanished from this part of Surrey, e.g. Garden & Ruby Tiger, Eyed Hawk, Burnets, Silver-Studded Blue. Even the birds have gone, no more bulfinches or cross-bills - all our farmland has been turned into housing.
So this weekend I'm off to Northumberland (>360 miles) to do a bit of birdwatching and recapture some of my youth when everything seemed far more abundant.
