|Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi) - a bugs eye view|
What am I talking about, well it's moth trapping!
|Early Grey (Xylocampa areola)|
|Twin Spot Quaker (Orthosia munda)|
It's been a bit on the chilly side since I've had it so I haven't had loads in the trap yet but I'm looking forward to trying again as it gets a bit warmer.
So what have I found living in my garden so far, we'll I've had these species so far:
Common Quakers (these seem to be the most common of the moths I get)
|Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica)|
Twin Spotted Quakers
This doesn't seem to be much but I've probably had an average of about 15 of each moth in my garden so it's a nice little moth community. :-)
|Black Sexton Beetle (Nicrophorus humator)|
I'm not sure why I didn't get more this weekend so if anybody has any tips of what sort of weather is really good for getting moths in the trap or what sort of area to put it in my garden then please either Tweet me, e-mail me or comment on this post.
I've called this post Marvellous Moth Trapping Part 1 as I will keep trying to catch more moths and I hope to have some more nice species to tell you about in future parts.
Hope you enjoyed,
