Dark Angle Shades Moth North Fife

Dark Angle Shades moth found yesterday evening outside on my kitchen window. Freshly emerged this female's wings had not fully inflated. The outside temperature was 4c. I am surprised to see her at this time of the year, she readily drank guava juice from soaked tissue paper and in the morning on placing outside, quivered a short while and took off. Completely out of season and unlikely to find a mate., most likely to be eaten by a hungry bird. Such is life.
