Red Underwings

Red Underwings | Farcet Fen | 28 July 2006

I hang any over-ripe bananas in a small hebe in the back garden. By day they are a major attraction to Red Admirals (up to seven in recent days), flies and other insects.

By night, snails and slugs climb the hebe and gorge themselves and a few moths come for a feed. Tonight, two Red Underwings joined the feast. I had up to three RUs coming to sugar syrup last year and I found one roosting on the cottage by day.
