With it's regal coat of white ermine fur, it's easy to see why this moth is so called.....Very common species and easily found, usually hanging tightly underneath nettle leaves, but the can be found on any of the herbaceous plants if your garden if you look hard enough, which is where I found this one.. Usually on the wing from May through to the end of July and having a wingspan of 35-45mm and a length of approximately 30mm.
Busy night again last night We have one staying over in the new nestbox today if you wish to look, although at the moment (06:30) it well buried under the hay, but it should move around a bit during the day.
