On the 29th May 2004 we had another visit from the Devon Moth group

We managed to photograph the following, but have not yet identified them all yet.


The quality is not as good as we would have liked it. Sometimes in low light the autofocus doesn't work properly. Also there is sometimes a colour cast from the vapour lights.

This one is a Poplar Hawk-moth Laothoe populi (1981)

No 2 We think this is a Drinker Moth Euthrix potatoria (1640 )

No 3 This is a Green Carpet Moth (See No 5 also)
