Likely Moths

The East Scotland Branch of Butterfly Conservation has done an excellent job of publishing lists and images of moths by month by vice-county. So if you follow this link you will find the VC104 page and you can select a month. December and January are blank but e.g. March shows 11 moths of which 7 are “Likely”, 3 “Unlikely” and 1 “Very Unlikely”.

Obviously it needs to be used with care but it is a good place to start if you have a moth you are not sure of.

In fact this March in VC104 has seen lots of Pale Brindled Beauties, a Currant Pug and a March Moth (not listed for  March in VC104) and at least two Red Swordgrass (listed as unlikely) so caveat emptor.
