News from hebden and Tod
Brian leesey has been recording satellites ,The Chesnut,Pale Brindled beauty at his wine rope and MV125 and Winston reports the following -
Last night looked good for moths, Cloudy and mild.
Trap was on as light faded and I went inside to eat curry! poped out to see if anything had arived and saw that characteristic shadow on the wall of the skinner trap!
My first Pale Brindled Beauty and first moth of the year.
On closer inspection 6 (Six) had arrived in a short time just after dark. Only 2 in the trap, the rest on walls etc. One of these was also A dark Form of the species.
Its certainly better in the lowlands as i have still recorded nothing up in Northowram.
