Hunting Bugs & Moths
The island’s junior natural history group Sark Watch has been busy over the last week having turned their attention to insects. With the help of local wildlife artist Rosie Guille, they set up a moth trap for two nights running and were delighted with the range of species attracted to their light particularly this early in spring. The most exciting find was a Satellite Moth, the first time this species has been recorded in Sark. Others recorded were Oak Beauty, Earl Grey, Common Quaker, Early Thorn, Dotted Border and Hebrew Character. On Saturday the group headed down to La Valette farm in search of more wildlife finding worms, beetles and ladybirds.
