Got a record number of moths in the 150W moth hotel last night – 75 moths of 14 species, mostly Lesser broad-bordered yellow underwings, of which there were 34:
New to the garden was a lovely little Antler Moth:
Also nice to see was this Plain Golden-Y
July High Flyer
I’m trying out different locations around the garden each time, last night was next to an overgrown rockery with a big patch of yellow flowers, clearly the Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwings like them! I’m going to try under the apple trees next time.
