Moths Continued

Diary of Natural Environment In and Around Wimpole

The moth trap continues to produce a wide variety off moths, the main difficulty is identifying them, lots of ” Brown ” ones which sometimes I think should just be called “Brown Ones” !!.

However I’ve made attempts at identifying these but i’m afraid some may be wrong. Corrections from any experts welcome.

This is really just a record of whats been identified

About Sadeik

You may ask why "Sadeik" well it means friend in arabic. Worked in Jordan a lot doing tree surgery you see. I have worked in forestry since I left school with a two years in Telecom. Went back to forestry and tree surgery as it may not have paid as much but was far more interesting and dangerous. Spent a lot of years mountaineering, caving and canoeing too. At 29 I went to Bangor University to study Forestry and soil science then did an MSc in Water engineering all very interesting. By a quirk of fate in 1995 ended up helping sort out the woodland and park at Wimpole, funny thing was then I only intended to stay six months or so, but 18 years later I'm still here learning all the time. That's the best bit, if I wasn't able to learn something new every year I would not have stayed and as you get older you realise that the grass is not so green in the next field after all. In fact my patch is getting greener while much of the rest is getting browner.
