Here are a few photos of all the most beautiful, local and scarce moths we’ve caught in the trap:
Satin Lutestring – Local
Poplar Hawk-moth. This is the only Hawk-moth I’ve ever caught, surprisingly.
Peacock Moth – Local
Gold-ribbon Argent, a micro-moth
1 Buff Ermine with 3 Peppered Moths
Cypress Carpet – an uncommon moth found on an alien host, conifers.
Great Oak Beauty, my first ever Nationally Scarce moth. That means it’s found in less than a 100 sites across the UK!
Beautiful Golden Y, the most stunning moth I’ve ever caught!
Scorched Wing – Local
Streamer. The only purple moth I’ve ever caught!
Oak Nycteoline. This was the first scarce moth of 2015!
