Favourite moths

Last night was mild and damp which seems to suit our garden moths. There were 33 moth species in the trap this morning, mainly 47 Large yellow underwing, 16 Flounced rustic, and 9 Flame shoulder. Also two of my favourites, Canary-shouldered thorn and Burnished brass.

  1. Mild and damp? It thrashed down here, 28mm! Let me see, must be all of 30km as the cloud flies!
    Even so moths were about and coming in and out of the house. Didn't need any trap to see a Devon Carpet early this morning.
