No 3....

Red Chestnut.

Nice spring moths, these. I've done well for them in the garden, having trapped 33 of only 34 caught in Northumberland this year. This is probably due to people not going further afield trapping when these are on the wing in April.

I look forward to my next one...


  1. Great reading Stewart, Red Chestnut is a beauty that i've encountered more commonly in woodland, the red can be suffused with almost a purplish tinge, simply stunning.

    Looking forward to no.3

  2. Cheers Ben, lots of highlights to follow...
