A team-away day provided the opportunity to use the skills of County Ecologist and moth expert Phil Sterling to bring the joy of moths to an unsuspecting group of colleagues. Phil was dispatched to Monkton Wyld last night to set up the moth trap, an effort which was this morning rewarded by three Poplar Hawkmoth, two Buff Tip, a Beautiful Golden Y, Pale Tussock, White Ermine, Buff Ermine and many other commoner species. The Poplar Hawk (top), Buff Tip (middle) and Beautiful Golden Y (bottom) are pictured here. Some amazing creatures, enjoyed by all.
