The eyes have it

Four species of adult moth yesterday evening and overnight, two to the trap and two found by torchlight just after dark.

The two found dusking – Dark Chestnut (Conistra ligula) and Early Moth (Theria primaria) – were betrayed by the reflection of my torchlight in their eyes, hence the title of the post.  Well worth giving this a try.

The garden trap yielded Chestnut (Conistra vacinnii) and a year first Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica).
