A Frosted Green

There was a Frosted Green moth in my trap yesterday. It is a distinction animal with a prominent green colouration.


It is a local species which is on the wing from mid April to mid May – another early emerger – another sign of a mild winter in a warming world.


It is normally found in long established broadleaved woodland. The caterpillars feed on oak tree leaves. I suspect that this Frosted Green has found a home on the large and splendid oaks trees at the bottom of my garden.
