Hi guys had this beast come to say hello through my window... i must say it made my night..it was so big i could just about get a pint glass over him, just need to know now what bread of moth it is now as i cant seam to find any pics on line? i liv in epping essex if that helps
No nothing like that, the colour was a rusty oranger and it had 2 White spots, one on each wing... Also a very big fury body.. I still have photo, maybe if someone sends mergers email I maybe I can email it and you can post it on here for me :-)
This guys isn't what I would call shaped like a butterfly, but none of the big moths we have really are. Could it be a Oak Eggar.
We do have 2500+ moths in the uk so its not as easy as it sounds to id one from a description, especially as at the moment we have loads on the wing.
Yeaaaaaa well done that man, that's the one, ingress it looked like it was shaped like a butter fly by the waynits wings were placed, seams like there not common here in Essex, thanks a lot :-)
