More amazing moths

This weather is fantastic more moths! My trap last night had hundreds of animals in it – here are a few of them.

Black arches
This is Black Arches – a local species in the south – caterpillars feed on oak

Drinker
The Drinker – usually a species of wetlands but it does like in gardens – caterpillars feed on coarse grasses like cocksfoot

Gothic
This is the Gothic – another local species – first time I have seen it – caterpillars feed on a variety of shrubs and plants

The Phoenix
This is the Phoenix – common – caterpillars feed on black currants, red currants and gooseberry
