Moth Trapping Session - Sat. 21st July

There is a scheduled moth night this Saturday at the cabin/café. Turn up from around 8.30pm onwards, lights on at around 10.00pm.

A visit to Tag meadow this morning proved fruitful whilst looking over a Crack Willow tree. Two interesting larvae were found - this exotic looking Sallow Kitten (above) and early instar Poplar Hawknoth (below).

The Kitten was right at the top of my target species - it's the first I've seen of any of the Puss Moth/Kitten group :-)

If it's not parasitized the adult should emerge next month.
