The christening of my new Robinson trap at Black Park was a triumph. We had a super-early Poplar Hawkmoth (see weird-shaped moth below), Frosted Green, lots of Longhorns (with the triumphantly long name Nematopogon swammerdamella), Nut-tree Tussock, a yet-to-be-identified Tortrix, and my favourite 3 Great Prominents. We also got very cold.
All of this mothing lark has sparked a few questions. The wonderful Moth Count scheme runs all sorts of FREE moth awareness and training events. If you fancy having a go why not join an event near you. You can find details over at the Moths Count website. You can watch our new moth film over at the BirdGuides website.
