Moth-ing

Elephant Hawkmoth

Earlier this year my dad bought a Moth trap, for myself and him to have our first year of Moth trapping, we'd already had a good list of moths without the trap including Poplar-Hawkmoth, Pale Tussock and Angle Shades.
We've had 5 trapping sessions this year, and we've had a good host of cool moths, my favourite include Elephant Hawkmoth, Buff and White Ermine, Light Emerald and Brimstone Moth.

Thank you to everyone on Twitter who have helped me identify some of the harder moths, and I'm sure there are more to come, as long as the weather picks up
