Double the Diversity
Nothing like a bit of warm weather to get the moths out and about; with all the IDs from last night finally clinched, I can now reveal a total score of 99 moths of 40 (macro) species, easily the most diverse haul of the year. Better still, 19 new ones for the TEAL Cup, Pale Pinion attracting the most attention from Moth-er Musgrove (it being a tick for him!), the best-looking beast award a three-way tie between Eyed Hawkmoth, Buff-tip and Angle Shades.
