Good to see both Lesser and Swallow Prominent together. In Somerset, gnoma is about one third as frequent as tremula. Keeping the Engrailed for a confirmation if possible � but most this early are likely to be Ectropis bistortata. It is impossible to separate this from the Small Engrailed (Ectropis crepuscularia) by sight. As I have not yet recorded either from my new garden then I'll try to resolve one or two.
Also recoded (new for the house) yesterday:
0648 White-shouldered House Moth Endrosis sarcitrella 1
If you have not got into the smaller moths yet this is one to look out for indoors at any time of year � have a look at ukmoths and I'm sure you'll soon find this!
