After a monster sleep yesterday and the World Cup matches being more entertaining than previous days I put the light out to see what was flying. It turned out to be another busy couple of hours with two Elephant Hawkmoths a few Small Magpies, Heart and Dart and a few more new moths for the garden attending the light. The Small Magpie seemed to be subdued after a night in the fridge but promptly flew off before I had photographed it. Hmm! I’m sure there will be others.
The following are all new moths for my garden:-
A Buff Ermine Spilosoma luteum was my favourite of the night bar the Elephant Hawkmoths of course.
