Back to Specsavers Dove

Bless you Edd

Moth trap fidget, a box with an overhead light. The moths are attracted and fall in then hide amongst the egg boxes in the bottom til we come and let them out. No damage to moth, they all fly off when released.

Some do sugar traps as not all moths come to light but I've never done than yet. 

Judging by the number of moths I saw in the headlight last night it's time for another trap.

I've got lots of Speckled Woods, more every year. Some Red Admirals and quite  lot of skippers which we don't often see. What I haven't seen are all the meadow brown.gate keeper, ringlets that I expect in the meadow. But it may be too early. I associated them with marjoram and that's not out yet.

The vipers bugloss is so full of bees and hoverflies there wouldn't be room for anything else

Nectar plants can be anything with nectar, nothing wrong with buddleia. Larval food plants are very specific and need checking out to attract the larvae.

Butterflies are popular and everyone wants to attract them. Unfortunately the opposite is true for the larvae Sad. But I'll continue to grow all the larvae food that will grow in my garden

I woulda said that was Common Emerald Dove

As pansyface says, allergies are personal and nothing to do with toxicity of a plant. 

If it was toxic it would affect everyone

Help to ID this?

I grow my wildflowers for the wildlife so if something makes use of them I'm very happy.

But like fidget I can't see any eggs or pest there

I'd look to starvation or dehydration first. Have you fed it and given it enough water?

I like these better before they flower
