It got very chilly last night and the garden catch at Westcott, Bucks was much reduced, but once again a single moth was able to lift the mood.  Lappet appears here roughly every other year and I didn't get one in 2014 so this arrival was not entirely unexpected!  A fantastic moth and follows on from the pair caught in one of Peter Hall's traps at Bernwood last week.

Lappet, Westcott 8th July


  1. yes it is a really cool moth - it's certainly on my list of ones I'd like to see

  2. A lovely pristine specimen, Dave - not seen one for a few years now.
