Withens Clough Car Park(Moorland mothing)

(looks like a Jackson Pollock)

A cold and windy night on the moor with little flying.However we did get Haworths Minor which was the target species and Small wainscot was a bonus.We recorded the bottom species as Suspected but I now think its Common Rustic agg.??The two ear moths are interesting.
