We set up a moth trap last night (well it wasn't really a trap - we shone a light on a white sheet and waited to see what turned up). It was a bit chilly, but we saw a few moths. Our favourite was this one, which we think is a Pale Tussock. Look at how hairy he is and what amazing antennas, which I guess he uses to sniff out the girls!

We also saw a Hebrew Character

and a selection of other little moths.

 We're definitely going to try this again, but a bit later in the summer when it's a bit warmer. It's very exciting when a moth turns up - even if it is only small and brown.
