Burnet Moths


Had a couple of e-mails this week about 5/6 spot Burnet Moths.The common Narrow Bordered 5-spot  Burnet Moth is easily found in calderdale and there white papery cocoons are a common sight at tag loop at cromwell bottom,..in fact some juncuss plants hold 50 or more in one clump.The 6 spot is less common and now is a good time to look for solitry males flying over areas of Birds foot trefoil .I found 8+ today at Cromwell Bottom.This Large Emerald was found dead in the back garden today.Also second generations of Early Thorn ,Currant and Double striped Puggs have been seen this week.
