Rather than post full moth trap results I would just like to share my
exitement at catching four species in my moth trap that I haven't seen
before (usually it's only one or none and then the new one is an LBJ that I
have great difficulty in identifying).
They were-
Endotricha flammealis
Phragmattbia fuliginosa fuliginosa (ruby tiger)
Cucullia umbrutica ( the shark)
Sphix ligustri ( privet hawkmoth)
The privet hawk was very impressive and nextdoors kids loved it, Is it the
largest britsh hawk?
