Some interesting moths have made appearances in my moth trap that I run in my garden which is on the south side of the Ridge near Ore.

I’ve been running my 15Watt actinic set up for about 3 years and have had approximately 120 species in the trap over that time, which I think is quite good for an ‘urban’ trap.

The first of the recent interesting moths is a Poplar Hawkmoth, totally unexpected really, as its not really an urban beastie.  The second moth is a very colourful Common Emerald and lastly my latest new species for the garden, Maple Prominent.
