Paddock Wood

Wood Carpet - A well distributed but local moth, this is the first one I've had in the garden (11th July).

Least Carpet - Restricted in range to the south-east of England, I've caught around 20 so far this year (11th July)

Aglossa pinguinalis - or Large Tabby. This moth used to be a more common inhabitant of old barns etc but has declined in numbers in recent years. This one was found resting behind some wood in the garden (3rd July).

The Dun-bar - A relatively common moth but can be quite variable in it's apperance (3rd July).
