Of course as a young conservationist I don't just like birds (even-though they are my main passion); but I love all wildlife and this year aside from birds I have particularly been focusing on early and mid year moths (just about coming out now and the start of July).
All of these moths were recorded over the last 2 weeks in my garden and will be entered into a national survey. I wanted to share these stunning moths with you as part of National Insect Week.
So here they are, a real mix of colours, shapes and sizes:
Birds Wing (local)
Lime Hawk Moth (my favorite of the year)
Double Square Spot
Eyed Hawk Moth
Now of course there are about 2700 species of moth in the UK, these are just a select few from my garden that I thought you might enjoy. So why not get out there set a moth trap up and discover these night time wonders for yourself.
By the way take part in the annual moth night from 3rd - 5th July.
