Lepidopteral Garden Safari – Part 96vii/d

Obviously, it’s not really Part 96vii/d (that’s just one of my perennial jokes). I think it’s probably the thirtieth or so post of moth garden safaris though…these are some of the varied species that made an appearance in the garden last night, drawn to the ultraviolet lure. My garden list is almost at 350 different species, there are some 1800 species in the British Isles overall, so still a long way to go and some species will never been seen in this little corner of England.

Three Privet Hawk-moths, UK’s largest moth
Gold Triangle, one of the smaller moths
A dark, but not 100% melanic form of Peppered Moth
Ruby Tiger
Swallow-tailed Moth
The Old Lady
Common Emerald, new for me in 2020
The Flame
