Moth Night 2015

This year’s annual celebration of moth recording in the UK, Moth Night, took place over three nights 10th-12th September. We put out a moth trap in the school’s Learning Garden for the Thursday night (10th September). Year 4 children emptied the trap the following morning, recording the moths caught and taking photographs. They submitted their results on the Moth Night website ( Twenty-four moths of seven different species were recorded. The most numerous species was the Large Yellow Underwing.

15 Large Yellow Underwing, 2 Lesser Yellow Underwing, 2 Green Carpet Moth, 2  Setaceous Hebrew Character, 1 Small Square-spot, 1 Blastobasis adustella, 1 Lunar Underwing.
