Toadflax Brocade: fourth year running

This little beauty is perhaps my favourite moth, the Toadflax Brocade. Back in August 2010, I found the first for VC32 (Northamptonshire and Peterborough), as well as the first for 'new' Cambridgeshire, in our garden in Peterborough. This moth I caught on 29.6.13, and it is the fourth year running I've recorded it. Durign this time, as far as I know, no one else has recorded it in Peterborough until this year, when TBs have been recorded at two other sites in the city. So, perhaps these lovelies are becoming a bit more established here.
