Forward to 15 May 2005 moth page, back to 7 August 2004 moth page, to general moths page.
This was actually our second trapping of the year, the first on 14th April
producing just one double square spot hence not worth reporting. This was
the warmest weekend of the year so far, though punctuated by a very loud
thunderstorm. Only a handful of moths in the trap, though all fine
examples. Main one is the Muslin Moth shown
below, an early riser that appeared in our trapping in mid
May of 2004. This time we got to see it's underside
as well - a lovely fluffy spotty creature with orangey hair around it's
"thighs". We also had a few particularly fine examples of Hebrew
Character (which is easily confused with the Double
Square-spot). Finally, there's Esperia
sulphurella (thanks to Harri Jalava for the ID).
