Bits and Bobbs
There are 32 records from 20 sites of Athrips mouffetell in Yorkshire. The only larval record is one from Derek Parkinson at Otley on 20/5/07.Many thanks Charlie Fletcher for the map.
There is an excellent article on hants moth http://www.hantsmoths.org.uk/tree
about leaf mines on Birch at this time of year with excellent photos by our very own Charlie Streets.
I will be at Cunnery wood this evening about 9ish if any one fancies seeing no Moths.I did find an Oak tree Pug,Loads of Adela Reaumurella displayiny,and a Phyllonorycter tristingella in the local wood this morning.So we may get something.
The RES Insect Festival is to be held on Saturday 4 July in the Museum Gardens, York. This is shaping up to be a very significant event, with a wide range of exhibits, trade stands, public talks, bug hunts, etc., to some extent replacing the event organised jointly by RES and AES at the Racecourse in some previous years. Dave Chesmore has booked a stand for the Lepidoptera Group. He needs volunteers to help run the stand, and also suggestions for topics and themes. He also needs good quality photographs of Yorkshire moths. If you can help Dave, please contact him on 01430 861964 or firstname.lastname@example.org
