Last few Days

Mother Shipton(pic from uk moths .ta)1 near Coley garden centre today ,could'nt get a pic as it would'nt stay still for long enough.10 small Heath and 6 speckled wood also.In the moth trap i have had 30 + species the highlights being The Herald,White ermine,Poplar and small elephant hawkmoth and my first Pepperd moth(melanic)of the year.
Keep an eye out for Silver Y's during the day as there were 300+ at Spurn yesterday.
