Diurnea fagella

With help from members of the North East Moths group my first moth of 2013 found whilst decorating in January has been identified as Diurnea fagella. A member of the Oecophorid family and an early spring moth usually seen from March to May.

Despite its drab appearance it is a new moth for 2013, a lifer and a welcomed addition to the garden list.
