A couple of hours running the moth trap last Saturday night delivered another new moth for the garden in the shape of this rather nice White Ermine.

P1110135 - White Ermine

Unlike my previous catches this individual was found a short distance away from the trap instead of actually in it. I’m beginning to think that my original plan to place baffles around the bulb is now a necessity if I’m to increase my nightly catches beyond single digits. A trip to B&Q may soon be on the cards …….

such a handsome moth you picked up there Adam; must be quite a buzz finding these in your 'trap'
