5th June Moth Update

Just catching up with things and here are a few from the last week or so with a couple new for garden there are a fair few here so stick with it, For the very small moths (micro) I have added their length in mm’s so the wingspan would be approx. twice that length. Oh and if anyone locally should want something identified take a photo as best you can and especially larvae found in your gardens as I would like to take them off of your hands (except for ones found on your brassica) and rear them through to adult if you were planning to kill them. So just write a comment on here and I will try to sort it.
