First Moth

Who needs a trap? I opened the front door on Tuesday and in flew our first moth of the year and a garden tick too! Thanks to the extremely impressive new Northumberland Moths website, which I have to say is probably one of, if not the, best county moth website going, it was quickly identified on Wednesday as a Chestnut. The second commonest moth in flight in Northumberland in February.

I wouldn't have known that if not for the aforementioned site and even if you only have the vaguest of interests in things moth I'd go and have a root around and bookmark it.
