Woodland moths

Nut-tree Tussock
Spring is starting to get going at last and a few more of our moth species are starting to emerge. We had a total of 12 species in the overnight traps, including these three:

Lunar Marbled Brown
Scalloped Hazel
 
After inspecting the traps we wandered through the wood enjoying the Bluebells and bird song, and found this micro moth flying amongst the vegetation
A small moth with a big name Nematopogon Swammerdamella
