Moths...

Whilst lockdown for Covid-19 is over in the UK, things still feel far from normal. Travel restrictions are making filming overseas difficult, although there's light at the end of the tunnel. Running the moth trap two or three times a week from home has been a lifesaver during this time.

Persistence paid off last week when I found a Bedstraw Hawkmoth in the trap, a new species for me.
