September Moths

We’re into September, the nights are cooler, autumn is on its way and the range of moths we’re getting in the moth trap is changing to reflect this.

There were a few new ones in the trap last night along with large numbers of Setaceous Hebrew Characters, but the Large Yellow Underwings and Dark Arches that were so prevalent during the summer are in decline.
