More moths...

Ran the moth trap again on the night of 17th/18th April, catching 79 moths of 12 species – a very similar-sized haul to earlier in the week, but with a differing range of species, including:

Early Grey (Xylocampa areola) – larvae feed on honeysuckle
Frosted Green (Polyploca ridens) – typical of oakwoods
Muslin Moth (Diaphora mendica) – a male; the female is white
Pale Pinion (Lithophora hepatica) – overwinters as adult
Square Spot (Paradarisa consonoria) – quite an early date
