One to look out for...

One good moth to look out for now is Small Brindled Beauty. It is very rarely
recorded in the county but should be flying now and for the next month or so in
mature oak woodland. Very few people start trapping in woodland until later in
March when it has probably stopped flying. The distribution in the county is
very poorly known, but we have scattered records across VC61,62 and 64. It
hasn't been seen in VC63 since Porritt's day. It would be rather nice to find
it in some new places.
 
Taken off Yorkshire Moth Yahoo group.Thanks Charlie Fletcher..Broadhead clough springs to mind.
