Butterflies & Moths

Heather moth

Burnet companion (moth)

Schmetterlinge - Die Braune Tageule hängt an der Blüte einer Acker-Kratzdistel

One of the more common owl butterflies found in rough pastures. The caterpillar’s food plants include bird vetch, alfalfa and clovers. The caterpillars are exclusively nocturnal, unlike the moths.

Chimney sweeper (moth)

Due to its small size and black colouring, this moth is often overlooked. However, some of the black moths can also be found during the day. They have a very unsteady flight and are therefore unmistakable.

This list will be extended. So look forward to seeing more native butterflies and moths in the future.
