Early Grey

Not tea, but a moth:

Early Grey

on the outside of our kitchen window all day today. I expect it will fly tonight.  Thanks to Brian Neath for the i.d. He says that there are no records in the database for Skye/Raasay since 1978!   Being an early-flying species it is poorly recorded on Skye/Raasay with no residents carrying out moth trapping.  Visiting moth enthusiasts tend to visit during spring and summer. His earliest record for Early Grey in Lochalsh was on 18th March 2009 so this is a good early date.
