Heath Royd past few evenings











Not sure what first moth is, thought Small Quaker but more than likely incorrect. Any ideas? Followed by Barred Hook-tip, Antler Moth, Copper Underwing and Early Thorn. Thanks Andy C. for the useful tips/ images on blog aiding identification of Copper and Svensson's Copper Underwing. Huge numbers of Yellow Underwings giving off a drumming sound in the trap each morning! Also Pyrausta aurata and Carcina quercana micros in the trap this morning along with Clouded Border a new garden moth for me.

Thanks Brian, thought Barred Hook - tip might not be so common in the area.

Barred Hook tip is a beauty,although now recorded throughout Yorkshire a second for Calderdale is a brilliant record.

Didn't realise it was so scarce in Calderdale. Just shows you that the more people that get involved the more you can find out what is happening in a particular area.
