Hardcastle Craggs Fri 17 06 11

Although worn a combination of features and size show this to be a May Highflyer,July usually shows a strong diagonal streak at 2, never 2 or 3 dark straight streaks at 1,and usually out much later july/august.Ruddy usually shows a longer diagonal streak at 2,and can show 2 or 3 straight dark streaks as in May Highflyer. also forewing size of this specimen is 13mm,. in July its 14mm to 18mm,Ruddy its 14mm to 17mm with May 13mm to 16mm,hope this all makes sense regards Bri/Andy
