One year ends, a new year starts

My last moth of 2015 was a Beautiful Plume, Amblyptilia acanthadactyla, on 31 December. This was hiding away in the depths of a very large hedge that I was struggling to prune back into some sort of order, so was a welcome reward.

And then my new year got off the mark today with the tiny Garden Cosmet, Mompha subbistrigella, found flying inside my house. This species often overwinters inside houses (and I see that I took a very similar photo on 7 January 2014!).

Happy New Year and good mothing to everyone!
