Farcet Fen insects

Buff Arches there are few better looking moths than this!

Mothing over recent days has seen an increase in both number of species and number of moths caught. Lots of new species now on the wing and a few first records for the garden.

Just part of one evenings catch - clock the three privet and single poplar hawks
