Parc Slip

Better catch at Parc Slip last night despite the big moon and cool temperature. Only 29 moths but they consisted of 20 different species with plenty new for the year: poplar hawkmoth (not at all posed below...), white ermine, brown silver-line, green carpet, common marbled carpet, silver-ground carpet, common white wave and cinnabar and a couple of cockchafers as a bonus.


  1. Actually 30 moths of 21 species - forgot about the solitary sallow kitten (also a first for the year)

  2. I really don't like cockchafers!

  3. They can cause a bit of havoc can't they but I prefer them to burying beetles - I can't get the smell out of some of my pots...
