An Enchanting Moth Morning

A wonderful time was had early morning by some of the Rosamund team (and newcomers!) checking out the pretty moths trapped by Peter overnight. One lady moth was very keen to lay her eggs, and started doing so inside her container, and continued on my hand. Her little eggs will be deposited on yummy stinging nettle leaves.

Big thanks to Peter for arranging these events and for listing the 18 moths spotted –

Privet Hawk
Elephant Hawk
Small Elephant Hawk
Silver Y
Common Footman
Heart & Dart
Heart & Club
Blotched Emerald
Beautiful Hook Tip
The Flame
Light Arches
Treble Lines
Clouded Silver
