A few moths pics

As sort of promised yesterday, here are a few moth pictures.
Jersey Tiger is a regular in the trap at this time of year; in fact there were four in the trap this morning.

Willow Ermine from yesterday. First record at Radipole which usually just means that someone’s not managed to ID one before but this could be an immigrant rather than a local. Saying that, the ermines are a tricky group to ID so hope I’m right!

Caught this species last night though this photo was taken back in Wales about 5 years. It imitates birds poo which is a pretty good way of stopping birds from eating you! Its a Chinese Character by the way.

One final one, not caught locally but one for any mothers who have the time to read my garble to ponder over. Picture not especially sharp as it was taken indoors on a rainy day.


  1. Scarce Silver Y I reckon Luke.

  2. Spot on. Took the photo in Wales where its a regular species in the uplands.

  3. Never seen one, a hoped for species when I trapped in Scotland but never happened. One day....
