A few moths from recent days.

I am by no stretch of the imagination a moth expert but when I am around a trap that is being emptied I am a bit like a moth drawn to a flame, I have to give them a look. I was at Landguard and Minsmere recently when they were empting their moth traps and as usual I was interested in what they had caught. As a beginner I am most interested in the colourful and big moths and am concious that I don't get to drawn in, birding is enough for me heaven forbid I go dashing of for a moth, what next butterflies and dragonflies!?
