Fantastic Mrs Fox

There have been plenty of additions to the garden list over the past couple of weeks but nothing at all out of the ordinary.  Last night a female Fox Moth put in an appearance, not unexpected here (this is actually the sixth straight year in a row that either a male or female of the species has graced the garden trap) but it is always a particular pleasure to see the larger moths turning up!  Like Oak Eggar and Emperor, Fox Moth exists at low levels in a wide range of habitats throughout our area but is more likely to be seen on heathland sites (Stoke Common being a favourite in Bucks).
