3.8.15.

Monday

Overcast but warm. 21ºC

Only had a short time on HC this afternoon. But I thought it was a fruitful visit. Started at the Wardens Office, which after the last week, and me visiting late today, I expected all the moths to have gone. First moth I spotted was this very pale Pebble Hook-tip….

I see this Pug a lot at work, but not much at HC. Its called a Lime-speck Pug…

Buff-tip which was in the middle of the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust Office Door. It amazes me at times how they hang on. Especially with the door being opened and closed….

I managed a better photograph of a Oak Long-horn (Carcina quercana)…

This was the highlight today. I decided to check out the area where I saw the White Letter Hairstreak, and good numbers of Purple Hairstreak. In that area there are some really tall thistles, while checking the thistles I noticed a very white moth on one of those Square Concrete and Brick constructions (Not Sure What They Are) which HC has. The moth in question was a Black Arches. This for me is a stunning moth, and also the first time I’ve seen it….
