...and a new pyrale

Much cooler last night, and the first visit to Aldwark wood of the year.  Still managed several new moths including this pyralid, a small grey thing with eight raised tufts, and a colourful pine-feeding tortrix.  I don't know how I missed the pyralid down south in Dorset but on checking, it has limited distribution, on the wetter areas to the east of the county.  In Yorkshire, spreading from the south, but remaining scarce in the northern half of the county.  Slender Brindle is also a scarce moth in the county, and one of several over the last couple of weeks.
0760 Exoteleia dodecella

1211 Rhyacionia pinicolana

1358 Evergestis pallidata

2335 Slender Brindle
Not too many moths, but not a bad nights work with three new species, and several new for the site!
