Andy, not related to your post but I remember on our last outing you recommended a good area for Mother Shiptons somewhere at Cromwell Bottom, could you remind where exactly that was as it's a moth high up on my wants list and should be flying around now?

Tag loop/Cut is the best area on the top.

Cheers Andy, I'll give it a go next week if the weather is sunny enough.

Burnet Campion is another one to look out for as well as Chimney Sweeper.
