There really is no end to all the special focus weeks on different kinds of wildlife - but this one is particularly relevant to us, given Andrew Graham's amazing photos of the moths in his traps.
We saw some magnificent species last year, but none I feel is more dramatic than this year's first Eyed Hawkmoth. The Guardian's Country Diary described the excitement of seeing it in a moth trap at Castle Howard:
'Something huge and swarthy emerges slowly, theatrically. An eyed hawk-moth: dark angel, Bram Stokerish, unsettling even before the lurid jump-scare flash of glaring false eyes on its underwings.'
Peter Shallcross is breeding both them and Privet Hawkmoths. so expect some more superb shots to mark this very special week.
The pages now display photos of moths taken by Andrew Graham. This one's the Puss Moth, looks very soft and cuddly.
This blog is updated usually every 2-4 days, depending of course on what's happening, as also other pages independently or linked from blogposts.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
