Additional notes: Gem is a rare migrant to Nottinghamshire and the fifth county record since 2000. It was of course, not only a new moth for the garden list (now 523 species)  but a personal first and ended a very long wait to see one. It was initially seen flying into and over the garden from the south and frustratingly just out of reach, but thankfully (as I had no idea what it was) netted at the third attempt.
