The Vestal

My moth trap is still catching good numbers of moths

This is The Vestal – an immigrant moth which is found in Britain between April and November – records in September may be individuals that have bred in the country – however they are unable to overwinter in Britain due to the low temperatures. They breed all year round in southern Europe
