16.5.15.

Nice day again, and slightly warmer than yesterday.

Spotted what I first thought was a Moth in a Cob-web. But on closer examination I could see it wasn’t in the web. My next thought was maybe it had escaped a battle with a bird or bat. Looking through my Moth Book and App at home this is actually how this Barred Straw rests normally. Obviously its a new moth to me, or I would have known that fact…

This Peppered Moth was posing well on one of the actual lights at The Wardens Office…

Nearly missed this Scalloped Oak, it had landed where the Blue Tits were nesting earlier on in the year. Not many moths land there…

Fingers crossed that this is the start of the Darters turning up on HC, with hopefully a few Blacks. This female Common Darter was behaving like it had just emerged….
