Just about the only insects that appeared to be somewhat active yesterday were Longhorn Moths. I caught this chap just before it took to the wing and I was surprised to see just how hairy it is.

Most of these seem to be being identified as A. reaumurella but there are other similar jobs so I'm not sure.

I fancy there's a slight purplish sheen to the leading edge of the wing; with that and the black hairiness, maybe A. cuprella?
