Autumn time

Feathered Thorn

The Brick
I've only been getting a few moths each time I trap, mainly a mix of Grey-pine Carpet, Feathered Thorn, the occasional Chestnut and November/Winter moth(Epiritta sp.) which is hardly surprising considering how cold it's been...hopefully next year will be a better year for moths in my garden.
