Moth trapping - a rarity found! / by Jonathan Thomson


On Monday, July 23rd we moth-trapped at UWNR. As ever the amazing Hugo Brooke, from Butterfly Conservation, ran the session and carried out the species identification. Conditions were OK, but not brilliant - clear skies and a 3/4 bright, shiny moon. 

The highlight of the session this Double Kidney, which Hugo had never seen before. Hugo has been moth-trapping for many decades, so this find was rather special.
