Hastings Country Park moths

On the evening of 26 July a couple of us went moth trapping in the Country Park. It had been a splendid run of weather and the day was hot, the evening warm, the moths plentiful. Within a couple of hours of starting we had filled our pots and had to stop. A trap run all night would have surely been brimful of moths the next morning!

…we also managed to catch this rather splendid Ichneumon Wasp, Amblyteles armatroius I believe, though I am aware of the many numbers of black and yellow Ichnuemons.
