Paddock Wood, 3rd March 2010

Pale Brindled Beauty - From http://ukmoths.org.uk/ "The females of this species are completely wingless, or apterous, a feature which is often found in moths which emerge in the winter months.The males fly from January to March, searching for the females which have climbed up tree-trunks. It is fairly common in England and Wales, and scarcer elsewhere in Britain, and may be found in a wide variety of habitats."
This was the only moth in the trap over the two nights I ran it.
