Moth traps

Pete Durnell, moth expert with Hampshire County Council, said there are 900 moths in the UK and 2,500 micro moths - many more than butterflies. He reckons he has found around 300 different ones in his garden in Lymington and said it's a fascinating subject. Why not have a go yourself? Last year we recorded the rare 'Scarce Merveille du Jour' moth. What will we turn up tonight?
