First Moth of the Year

by A warbler a day

Getting home tonight at around 10.15 I noticed a small shape above my front door. On closer inspection I was delighted to realise that it was a moth. A rather plain micro-moth but still a moth. Having caught it and brought it indoors I was able to identify it as the Parsnip Moth, Depressaria radiella. My mothing year has finally started. Roll on the warm weather and more moths in my flat!
