You can sit in your garden all day and enjoy the butterflies, birds and bees but the best wildlife that lives there only comes out when you go to sleep — the moths. With 2500 species in the UK our moths have our butterflies outnumbered 43 to 1. And in many cases moths are much bigger and more colourful than our butterflies. There are pink ones (Elephant Hawk-moth), green ones (Large Emerald), yellow ones (Brimstone), ones wearing glasses (Spectacle), ones that look like twigs (Buff-tip) even one that looks a bit like Des Lynam (Mottled Umber). Well, if you squint it does.
No moths are injured in this process. There should be two moth traps in two locations and maybe a third in Eastfield. Bring a torch.
A powerful ultraviolet light is used in the moth trap and it is recommended people wear dark sunglasses near the lamp and bring a hand torch if for walking about in the field between the two sites.
We include photos of a Cinnabar and Tiger moth, also we slipped in a Painted Lady butterfly, because it looks nice.
