Friday's Moths

Another quiet night for the Pitsford moth traps.  Numbers of all moths are still hugely below what would be expected for this time of year.  Having said that there were several very attractive moths in the night's collection.  Star of the show was again a Poplar Hawkmoth (which was pictured in the previous moth posting).  Illustrated below are three of the supporting cast: Green Silver-lines, Peppered Moth and Green Carpet.  The Green Carpet photo is particularly pleasing as it is a notoriously flighty moth and this is the first time I have managed to get a reasonable picture of one.

Also present were Hebrew Character, Angle Shades and Brown Rustic.
