June 22nd Mousehold Heath

A chilly moth night at Mousehold Heath
Last night was yet another moth evening at Mousehold Heath. Despite the event starting at 10pm, there was a reasonably good turn up for it. And though it was pretty chilly as the night went on, we still manage to catch a few moths in the trap, not as many as we hoped for, but nonetheless enough to show the family that had turned up for this late night trapping session. A handful of these moths were apparently new to the site, too, which made waiting around outside in the cold instead of being in bed well worth it. Here's what we caught...

Purple Clay
Willow Beauty

Heart and Dart
Single-dotted Wave
Buff Ermine
Marbled Brown
