This morning we had the best catch of the year in the Souter Moth Trap. Mind you, thats not really that difficult cos its been an absolutely rubbish year so far. There were 40+ individual Moths from 15 different species, but the undoubted highlight was this absolutely stunning POPLAR HAWKMOTH (above). Its only the second time I've ever seen one of these incredible Moths, and the only species of Hawkmoth I've seen in the UK. Other highlights included Buff Ermine, Angle Shades and my first ever Ghost Moth.
