New one yesterday morning, a Small Eggar
It would have been hot off the press but my 6 month old hard disc died & had a new one under garantee. It still cost me 70 euros to have all my stuff transfered though! Funny old guarantee!! Nice to get this moth though, there were a few others but haven't sorted them yet!
Hazel in the Gironde estuary, France
It's a beauty H! Got some pics from the other night not sorted yet (blame Peregrines & Mr K) but my latest acquisition is LBAM larva currently pupating in a piece of kitchen towel in a box on my dining table (where else? Lol)
Least Black Arches larva? Looking forward to your photos Wendy, must look & see what Mr K has been up to!
Sorry H! Light Brown Apple Moth (not posted latest Mr K yet but will do soon!)
They are arriving thick & fast now! Last night & this morning I had 23 moths of 9 species. new ones this year being :
A Garden Carpet
Several Clouded Drab
& Twin-spotted Quaker
I'm back off to the reserve tonight for another attempt at a trap, the last one got rained off!
Good stuff to start us off H, nowt here as too windy/wet/chilly but ... LBAM now a chrysalis with a jettisoned head!!! Lol It's sooo tiny! Pics soon
Ron mentioned you have gales & snow coming! Good news on the tiddler, was it a caterpillar you found, I can't remember?
Finally sorted ...
Unknown Moth from house
From Moth trap
This larva subsequently wrapped itself in fold of Mothing sheet
Sent a pic to this guy ...
So it could be a suprise moth, keep us allin suspenders until it hatches! LOL
