MERVEILLE DU JOUR

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

One tends to think of moth-trap­ping be­ing at its rich­est on balmy mid­sum­mer nights. While that is true in terms of quan­tity of moths cap­tured, au­tum­nal qual­ity can ac­tu­ally be greater. One of Oc­to­ber’s stand­out moths is the en­chant­ingly named Merveille du Jour, which means, roughly, ‘the best thing I’ve seen all day’. Though, of course, it is ac­tive at night.
