28.4.15.

Quite a nice afternoon, although windy again.

Went back to see if I could find the small moth on the Heather I photographed yesterday. I did manage to find one. I also managed a better photo today. Also although yesterday’s photo wasn’t great, Dave Grundy who is a moth expert identified it for me. Todays photo although better, it was still in the dappled light in amongst the Heather. The moth itself is called a Neofaculta ericetella…

Whilst I was checking the Heather for above moth, I found this male Common Heath…

Also on the Heather was this Tawny Mining Bee, heavily laden with pollen…

Spotted this Bee-fly (Bombylius major), watched it ages flicking its eggs everywhere in the grass, and close to the Mining bee holes….

Had close encounters with 2 Tree Pipits up the New Heathland Corridor. They were obviously catching loads of small invertebrates on the bare earth…

Unidentified Small Bee. I will put this on BWARS and iSpot, see if I can get identification…
