From the Clifftop

In the last 24 hours our Clifftop garden has provided two things I've never seen in my life before-a male Palmate Newt in our pond, and a Mullein Moth in the trap this morning.

Mullein moths are widespread, readily detected by their attractive caterpillars feeding on Great Mullein.


This is common, but we don't have any in our garden. The adult moths are rarely seen, so I was delighted to add this striking  species to the garden list today.  [The moth trap has finally got going now the chilly nights have ceased, lots more species including Cream-spot Tigers daily and the first Poplar Hawk this morning]
