March Moths

Looks like food for the summer migrants is appearing ahead of them- I had this lot in the moth trap last night/this morning - 5 Common Quakers, 2 March Moths, a plume sp (emmelina monodactyla?), 2 micros (agonopterix sp?) and a massive bee. They all sat still for the photo- eventually!
Quaker action here:

Especially enjoying the recent moth posts - I'm interested to see how they compare with mine 'down the road'.

Hi Jerry,
I don't think we are going to get a lot tonight in this weather. Where are you based? Any different species to what I'm getting?

Frode Falkenberg said...

Hi! I think your micros are Agonopterix alstromeriana and Acleris (notana?).

Thanks a lot Frode. The small one is Acleris right?
