Its Moth Time!

A lot of moths in the trap this weekend. Despite trawling through my moth books so many times that I was cross eyed, there are a dispiriting number that I cannot identify but I am creating a ‘Moth Mysteries’ photo folder and putting these queries in there until such a time as I sort them out and not let it put me off.

Of those moths that I could identify there are some beauties:

Angle Shades
Angle Shades – three of these in the trap.
Brimstone Moth

As usual, I am amazed by the attractiveness and variety of moths that fly around the meadows at night.
