Highgate Woods London – First recorded Leopard Moth – Zeuzera pyrina

First recorded Leopard Moth - Zeuzera pyrina

The first recorded Wood Leopard Moth, Zeuzera pyrina, has been made in Highgate Woods in North West London. Native to the UK it is only common in the South but never before in Highgate Woods and it's natural reintroduction is a sign of increased biodiversity in London. The larvae feed on the wood of a wide variety of deciduous trees and the "Highgate" Leopard Moth was discovered in the heart wood of an Ash log having entered through decayed outer wood suggesting healthy trees are not the preferred choice.

    Rewilding - Pine Martens could help save Red Squirrels

    New video for a new playlist! The European pine marten (Martes martes), known most commonly as the pine marten in Britain, and less commonly also known as pineten, baum marten, or sweet marten, is an animal native to Brirain and Northern Europe belonging to the mustelid family, which also includes mink, otter, badger, wolverine and weasel. Rewilding is large-scale conservation aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness areas, providing connectivity between such areas, and protecting or reintroducing apex predators and keystone species.
