New Moths Found on 24 July 2004

Forward to 1 August 2004 moth page, back to 18 July 2004 moth page, to general moths page.

A good catch, of which I'm only going to give the highlights here.

Most interesting was the creature on the top row here - a Pebble Prominent.  It sits with it's legs stuck out at the front, just like a dog, and this arrangement makes it looks very much like the traditional smear of bird dropping.  There were a load of Yellow Underwing in the trap, and I managed to catch a rather nice head-shot of one where you can see it's tongue just visible.   Thanks to Angus T and Surrybirder for help with the IDs.  The other catches were:
