Hardcore Moths

Below are two moths I've found in and around my garden in the last week. These two, like many others, can be found in the coldest months of the year. It makes you wonder how these hardcore animals manage to survive in the freezing temperatures and horrible weather that makes up an unbeatable British forecast!

Male Feathered Thorn... found back on the 10th.

A Rush Veneer, a migrant species that can be found at any time of year... found on my local hill, Stoke's Field last week.

Hi Billy. Seems such a long time since we saw you and the last time I responded to your blog, also on moths, was on the 10th October. You have done a fair bit since then but I have now caught up. Sorry, but I have been busy. Excellent stuff as usual; refreshing and so different to my daily dealing. The winter is approaching so these small animals will have to make good provision for themselves if they are to survive, as I sincerely hope they do. Hope all is well and that your mobility is now restored to pre-op days. Gramps.
