Moths and a bumblebee

The numbers of moths in my trap are beginning to build up with the milder weather.


This is an Early Thorn – love the beady eye!

This is a Chestnut – lovely orangey colour and distinctive black marks


This is a Brindled Pug – pugs are not very easy to identify ….


This is a Clouded Drab – an unkind name perhaps


And finally there was a rather sleepy Tree Bumblebee in the trap as well – a recent colonist to Britain but one that has been very successful and spread far and wide.
