Recent sightings

The sunny weather a week or so ago ment lots of butterfly activity on the nature reserves around Halifax. Highlight was a Small Copper at Shibden Park on Friday 7th. Also had an Orange Tip laying eggs on the garlic mustard in the garden, and further investigation found tiny little caterpillars as well. I did come across these 2 micro moths mating in the garden (above). Anyone any idea which species they are?
