Found on the kitchen window on the 15th was this tiny moth which turned out to be Mompha divisella, the 13th record for Pembs. The larva makes galls in willowherb stems, of which there is plenty around here! (The pictures are terrible as the moth kept running around the pot and also my camera just won't focus properly through the plastic.) I notice that Chris Handoll on the Carmarthen moth blog found three of these on the garage windows on the same day so maybe they have all simultaneously woken up from their winter hibernation.
