On an early morning solo walk on Lacken Hill it wasn't only the lost souls of 1798 that accompanied me. I noticed small brownish moths flying in and about the forestry that spreads it's way around the slopes of this lovely little hill. Keeping a handy pot in my kit-bag I eventually captured one of them for a photo and ID. Turns out they were Spruce Carpet moths, common moths on the wing May to July and later September to November. Look out for them on a hill near you! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1300/comment/16102/
