Ringlet



Found this Ringlet on Tag meadow this morning,It was first recorded in Calderdale in 2006 by C.Duke at Lightcliffe quarry.I recorded it at Northowram last year and I think this is the first record for Cromwell Bottom.They look very similar to Meadow Brown in flight but appear almost black with a white trailing edge to the lower wing.Keep an eye out for this new species to our area.Golden plusia at Northowram last night and 56 Meadow Brown,5 large Skipper,5 Small heath and 14 Speckled Wood today at northowram.
