Double summer moth trap

Last night we put out two moth traps and were able to compare the results. On the front of our property - which is quite open and faces north over the Solway plain - the highlights were, buff tip; peppered moth; gold spangle; poplar hawk and many swallow-tailed moths. At the back of the property - in a sheltered and some what over grown vegetable/flower garden the highlights were, peach blossom; antler moth; marbled minor; elephant hawk and barred yellow. In total we had 50 species which is only 2 less than last year at this time.
Garden tiger; buff tip; lesser swallow prominent; dark arches ( f.aethiops) and light arches.

Garden tiger scales!
