Marvellous moths

We set up the moth trap last night and left it running all night. It was very exciting this morning when we opened it up to see what was inside - we found loads of moths. This is just a selection - I've had a go at naming some of them, but it's surprisingly difficult, so have made a few up!

We'll try it again a bit later in the summer and see if we can get some Hawk Moths.
