Toadflax Brocades

The brighter of the two individuals

The less bright individual
Last year, I caught the first Toadflax Brocade for VC32 (Peterborough and Northamptonshire) on 15.8.10. Last night I caught two of the little beauties! When I caught my first it was also new to Cambridgeshire (though in a different vice-county). However, another Cambs garden has turned up caterpillars and this year also adults. Are my moths migrants or is there a local population?
