MOTH WEEK 25/06/2014



As its been about three weeks since I've posted anything thought I had better put a few images up.
The truth is although its been beautiful weather I have not been out with the cameras,instead I have been clearing up my neighbours garden for him as it was very over grown and at 93 years young he's not able to do it any more, still have a little bit to do but the bulk of it is sorted.
So back to the post, I have put the moth trap out three nights this week and have averaged between twenty and thirty moths each night, although this is a small amount it suits me fine as I can get through them quite quickly.
So these images are some of the species trapped, I will mention they are all released back into the trees when I've finished.
Also went down to Godrevy Wednesday morning and had a few things, I will post these next time after I have sorted them.
