Time For Some Unusual Cooking!Recipe to find moths:
Brown Ale, Brown Sugar, Treacle ......... Red Wine, Sugar..................
This is me I am going to make sweet yummy moth food. I feel so excited, I can not wait for it to get dark. Mummy got me to try treacle it was not nice, it was very thick and sticky and smelt horrible. Daddy loves it in his pudding ha ha!

Some yummy moth food, now
for some night time painting and cloth dipping.
|Red Underwing (Catocala Nupta)|
I was really excited to see the moths, they were lovely. The red underwing was my favourite is was very big. We didn't find lots of different moths only 3 types. I wonder why that would be? I also liked the brown moth it had lovely, pretty shades of brown. Can you see the moths tongue?
|Silver Y Moth - They shiver to warm up on cold days !!!|
The earwigs loved the treacle mixture. I counted 11 earwigs all munching away!
I am going to do some more moth night time hunts and next time I think I will spread the wine cloths everywhere!!
