Moths galore! Pulham Market.

I've been keeping up with moth trapping on as many nights as I can fit in around other things going on (mainly work and dashes up to the coast for birds!). Saturday night, 31 May was an epic night with 120 moths in the trap and a really good variety of species. It took me most of Sunday to gradually get through them. A selection of the best were Grey Pine Carpet, Swallow Prominent, Middle-barred Minor, Common Wave, Buff Ermine, Garden Carpet, Pale Tussock, Large Yellow Underwing, Flame, The Snout, Scorched Wing, Clouded Silver, Vine's Rustic, Beautiful Golden Y, Lime Hawkmoth, Peppered Moth and Setaceous Hebrew Character.

I'd urge anyone interested in Moths in Norfolk to submit their sightings on the award winning Norfolk Moths website which can be found here

Here are some pics of some of the good lookers from the past few days:
