Elland Gravel Pits

A walk around Tag loop and Meadow this evening was very relaxing after this afternoons exploits in Africa.(say no more).At least 3000 Narrow Bordered 5 Spot burnet Moths on Vetch,Silver Y's ,Straw Dots,Shaded broad Bar ,Ringlets,Meadow Browns and Common Blues(pic above)flying about the meadow.I also found 3 Small China Mark(which is new to me and Calderdale I think..Paul?)and 6 Brown China Mark on tag cut.Its well worth a look at the moment just for the sheer numbers of Burnet moths alone..
