I've only ever seen one Scarce Silver-lines before so was delighted when Nick came over with this stunning specimen - 'fresh out the box'. Thank you Nick!
An as yet unidentified caterpillar that was stuck to the outside of the trap this morning.
With all the Painted Ladies and Red Admirals around I had high hopes for the moth trap least night. This Maiden's Blush was the highlight, despite being a bit tatty, with one Dark Sword-grass and a single Silver Y the only immigrant species.
Nick and I headed over to Topsham to see Yellow-legged Clearwing - a truly stunning little moth that you'd probably never see without a pheromone lure.
