New Moths Found on 6 June 2004

Forward to 20 June 2004 moth page, back to 16 May 2004 moth page, to general moths page.

Summer's here properly now.  Probably 50 moths in the trap with a lot of variety, though Heart & Dart comprised a good 20%.  Pictures of the interesting ones below, particularly impressive on this occasion being the Buff Tip, which looks exactly like a small piece of broken off twig.  Others who's photo we've not included here ('cos we've seen them before) are the Pinion-streaked Snout and The  Flame.  The bulk of the identifications here are with thanks to those on the bird forum moth discussion list.  Thanks guys!
