No micros, but a Large Wainscot

The temperature dropped to 3 degrees in my garden last night. As a result, not a single micro moth was found in the trap this morning, although there were still 42 macros. Of these, 23 were Lunar Underwings. New moths for the year were Sallow, Barred Sallow and Deep-brown Dart. In addition, there was a Large Wainscot, a moth that is new to me.

There was also what I take to be a Common Wainscot, so I photographed the two Wainscots together to show the difference in size.

There are some reed beds not too far away, and I guess this is where the Large Wainscot came from.
