I have decided to merge my blogs a little (I just don’t have the time to be keeping two blogs going on a regular basis) so from now on my Mothin’ in the Garden posts will be appearing here on Views From an Urban Lake from now on (I’ll tag them all “Mothing” and have added a link to the menu bar (Moths) which will show you all the related posts, so you won’t have to search for them if that is all you want to read, although the rest of the blog is interesting I think) This may mean on some days more than one post though.
Moth Trapping Overnight
And so today is my first post of mothing on this blog, please enjoy, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
So last night I trapped as it had been a warm day and I didn’t have to get up early for work as looking after my daughter this morning (booked time off), the results were ok (I must admit I wasn’t up at dawn to close the trap off as I normally would be, I got up at 6 instead, so I may well have lost a few in the daylight).
Brown Apple Moth
|Mother of Pearl||1|
|Heart & Dart||3|
|Large Yellow Underwing||7|
|Lesser Yellow Underwing||4|
|Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow|
As you can see 25 different species of 78 moths (down on normal, but guess that is my fault not getting up earlier) but best of all two new species in the form of a Pebble Hooktip and Small Scallop, both nice looking moths (especially the hooktip which is a stunner).
