Small yellow Underwing

A very windy day turned out well with this Small yellow Underwing,and swarms of Adela reaumurella displaying.Small Yellow Underwing are local in yorkshire and I only recorded them for the first time in Northowram last year,they should be looked for during the day and when flushed from vegetation look like a sandy coloured micro its only when you get a close look you see how beautiful they are.Flower rich meadows with plenty of sunshine.I am sure they must be at Copley Meadows and Cromwell Bottom.?
