A Great Prominent and a Nut Tree Tussock

A couple of interesting moths from my trap over the past couple of days.


This is a Great Prominent – it is a large moth – over an inch in length.


It is a local species, it is on the wing between April and June and its caterpillars feed on English Oak


This is a Nut Tree Tussock – it is a common species and as its name suggests the caterpillars feed on hazel
