The Moth Diaries (pt 2)

More moth trapping – this time at Pelsall North Common.  A pretty good night, with a few stunning little moths!

Gold Spot moth was the blingiest (yes, it’s a word), and prettiest has to go to Ruby Tiger.  We had loads of True Lover’s Knot moths (gotta love the names!), along with a few Smoky Wainscots.

But the cutest, fluffiest, most adorable moth award has to go to this Drinker moth (I just wish they were the size of, say, Koalas) who hung around for most of the night, generally being adorable and looking like a miniature Mr Snuffleupagus.  We have more moths planned at Barr Beacon, and a return to Shire Oak next week.
