Today at St Mary’s we had moth expert Mark Spencer come and join us. 39 – yes you read that correctly – 39 different species of moth were identified in the churchyard. This is really exciting as the churchyard team have worked really hard to develop bio-diversity and support the local environment and eco-system. A big well done to the churchyard team for all their hard work.
Just incase you’re worried, no moths were harmed during the trapping. It’s marvellous to see wildlife flourishing in the St Mary’s churchyard, or should that be – it’s moth-ellous!
P.S. a prize of personal glory for the first person to guess correctly the type of moth in the photo in the comment section below. 🙂
