“This is a moth
This is noth …”
followed by moth trapping in the cemetery grounds by Yorkshire Moth Man Dr Dave Chesmore.
The moths were a little backward in coming forward, but we did see Flame Shoulders a-plenty along with, amongst other things, an Ingrailed Clay, Green Carpet, Pale Prominent …
… a Heart and Dart and this utterly amazing (IMHO) Pale Tussock:
If you missed this Buzzing! Moth Night, fear not – Dave and I will be putting on a whole Moth Day at St Nicholas Fields/York Environment Centre on Saturday 27 August, in which you really will find out everything you always wanted to know about moths, but were afraid to ask!
Can’t wait that long? Then let us put on a Buzzing! Moth Night where you are! Contact me for more details!
Many thanks on this occasion to Clive Dawson of York Cemetery, Dave Chesmore and to Jean (for bringing me my bell!) And to everyone who came along and joined in the event.
