Moths

We have been very lucky to have the help of Tony Harman and Jim Winter for our moth survey work. They have set moth traps in our woods and garden over a number of years and identified the moths for us to produce a very interesting and healthy species list. This year, as for many species has been particularly bad and we have little data collected. We will continue with the survey next year in the hope of increasing our species list. With grateful thanks to Tony and Jim for all their hard work.


Pale Prominent, Pterostoma palpina


Egg boxes are used as a resting place for moths inside the trap.


Elephant Hawk Moth, Deilephila elpenor
