Moths at Saron
I have found a few Mullein caterpillars on our Mullein plants - see photo below.
We encourage the latter specifically for the former but never get more than a few plants. Some years they are covered in the caterpillars but other years, like this year, there are just a few with some plants having none yet. I see they come to light but I have never caught the moth. So, a question, do I record this moth as it is clearly here, even though I have not actually caught and seen one here?
Walking back through our woods this am I disturbed a Beautiful Snout. I have never caught or seen this one before here. We do have lots of bilberry in the woods. I do not take a camera around I'm afraid so there is no photo.
