Moth trapping back in our garden in North Sheffield a couple of nights ago, this absolute beauty turned up. Called the Buff Arches Moth, and frequently found in or near woodlands in June and July, I hadn’t had it turn up on a moth watch before. It is attracted to light and to sugar. My home made moth ‘trap’ uses light. Moth night was a few nights ago but it was too wet to do then but always exciting as you don’t know what will turn up. Conditions: Heavy rain and sunny periods. Temperature: Max 20- Min 13 C.
