Still very few moths in Aylesbury

Just a sprinkling of moths to my garden trap recently, the only new for year were Waved Umber and Nut-tree Tussock - I don't know why I bother! In the meantime I had a pristine Green Silver-lines moth hatch today, reared from eggs obtained in the Chilterns last June; I also found 9 Scarlet Tiger larvae at Snakemoor near Haddenham recently, so still a little to keep my interest in moths alive!   Dave Maunder

  1. Lovely Green Silver-lines, Dave - could do with one in the garden! It is in all the local woods but hasn't visited here yet. Scarce Silver-lines, on the other hand, puts in an appearance just about every year.
