Red Underwing

A warm but very blustery night with occasional drizzle which got heavier just before 2am so I decided to bring the trap in earlier than usual to avoid any chance of the rain damaging the lamp, I had seen what I thought were 2 Old Lady moths fluttering around the trap but it turned out one was a stunning Red Underwing which was inside the trap and came as quite a surprise to me when I found it(there was an Old Lady in there too!).
The trap was out from 8:45pm to 1:55am

  1. Yes Ian, a much cleaner look for your Blog! nice.
    You can add so much to a Blog its abit daunting at times, i'm currently experimenting with html coding for drop-down menus but its very time-consuming!

    Lovely Red Underwing by the way!
