Still more moths...

A few more nice moths over the last few days, although very little moth immigration going on. Really pleased to see Silver Hook in the garden, only the second one I'ver seen and one of my favorite moths. A few fen/shore specialists also turning up now, including Small Dotted Footman and Dotted Footman, both Red Data Book species and a rare combination except in the Broads. And a whopping great nocturnal ichneumon wasp, Stauropoctonus bombycivorus, one for Seth to enjoy. And a Crossbill in the garden, so the garden list for the year is now 1195.

  1. Your moths are just outrageous. Though if I was cherry-picking I'd have that Nowickia
