National Moth Night

with No Comments

The twentieth anniversary of National Moth Night takes place over three nights between 26th and 28th September.

This year the magnificent Clifden Nonpareil Catacolia fraxini also known as the Blue Underwing, is one of the targeted species.

For those unfamiliar with this scarce UK resident and migrant species photographs of the complete life cycle can be viewed on the Clifden Nonpareil species page.

Recent sightings have included more Death’s-head Hawkmoth caterpillars from most parts of the UK which suggests there had been a strong influx of the moths earlier in the year. Also the caterpillars of Bedstraw and Convolvulus Hawkmoths.
