Checking our nets...
Anything down there?
Not a moth... lots of these ladybird beetles were spotted eating aphids...
Also not a moth... Wasp eating sweet droppings from the aforementioned aphids.
Success! A few moths were found, including this pupa of some type of Birch Leaf-roller Moth.
The end of a fun moth hunt day!
