So I met up with Heather Martin and Rod Taylor in Barnes Wood and we managed to identify over forty species of moths on a relatively chilly May night.
The largest moth of the evening was the Pine Hawk-Moth (Hyloicus pinastri)

The the Birch Mocha (Cyclophora albipunctata) takes its name from the port in Yemen (where the Coffee and the soft leather made from sheepskin originate too).
