Summer Moths.


In the few nights that I have put out the moth trap this Summer I have managed to catch a few moths of interest, in fact too many for one post, so another post in a few days will also have a few more of these.

Most of the moths have come from my trap, but with a Drinker from Mike Mullis and a few more from Clare's trap of species that I miss out of in my garden. Thanks to both for letting me get a few shots of those.

The Jersey Tiger (pictured above) has been very evident this Summer with several multiple catches, although Clare is well ahead with a top count of 48 Jersey Tiger in one night for her!!

In total contrast we have only had one Garden Tiger between us with this beautiful example below.
