More Summer Moths.

Dusky Thorn.


On the few occasions the moth trap has been out there have been a few new species for the garden including the beautiful and delicate Palpita vitrealis, which is a migrant micro moth.  How this incredible insect manages to fly across the Channel, along with many other species always amazes.

Several other species this year are worthy of showing here, and as we enter the Autumn one hopes for a rarity or two.
