Chocolate Tip and Hedge Mini-Rant

 Caught this Chocolate Tip in the trap last night- also Frosted Green, Muslin Moth, Pale Mottled Willow, Hebrew Character, Early Grey and Brindled Pug
A lot of people moan about the removal of hedges in the countryside and the resulting loss in biodiversity. A lot of those moaners are landowners themselves, private home owners or maybe land/business owners/managers who choose to manage their own urban boundaries with fencing rather than hedging so its maybe a bit of  urban/country eco-hypocrisy going on? Here's a hedge we planted a few years ago to replace a fence for a local private estate.
