Moths Garden

This is a list of moths I have recorded in my garden. I live in a residential area most houses having gardens at the front and rear. I have borrowed a mothlight (thanks Dodge) which has a powerful bulb and illuminates half my garden.
I have listed the pictures by family type using the Concise Guide to the Moths of GB and Ireland by Townsend and Waring.

  1. Hi again, the Spruce Carpet is actually Cypress Carpet and the Clouded Drab is also Bright-line Brown-eye like the one beneath it. Cheers
