Moth Night

Time for moths again, I started tonight down at the place I work in  the nearby wooded area but had to abandoned it due to excessive amount of midges present plus I had only caught 3 moths (see this LINK) so I relocated back to the back garden. Whilst I was setting up I had already caught sight of 2 moths (Large Yellow Underwing and Light Arches) on the nearby Buddleia.

I was reward with the relocation the morning after with 13 species for the night with 3 new ones

  1. Something about that lovely Scalloped Oak suddenly made me think of (long-forgotten?) Marty Feldman… RH
