Took a walk yesterday afternoon from home, up Norcliffe Lane to Sunny Bank Farm, then cut down the fields to Sunny Vale before returning to Badger Lane.
(all above in large numbers, 50+) on lanes and in fields)
lots of grass moths
1 red admiral
1 large white
Might be worth setting up a few heath traps in the grass one night and leaving to see what we find. Also found a half eaten carcass of a moth (bottom) on the road around the old factory. Is it an emerald?
Sunny Vale lake produced lots of blue damselflies, 2 kingfisher, heron and 27 orchids.
Also included the photo of the moth I am having trouble identifying from the trap any help welcome.
Also Andy you mentioned about another visit to Cunnery Wood, do you want to try this Thursday evening?
