Lade Moths

Lade - 0700hrs - mild, sunny, s2, hot by midday - A good catch in the trap last night with 30 species and over 100 moths, including new for the garden Green Silver-lines, a scarce moth down here, which is more at home in woodland. Dark Tussock, Scalloped Oak and Privet Hawkmoth were all new for the year.
