Over the weekend

 Green Brindled Cresent (dark Form)
 Acleris Hyemana
 Setaceous Hebrew Character
 
Small Dusty Wave

A few interesting moths over the weekend after last weeks clear skies and cold temps.The Green Brindled Cresent dark form is only found in GB and only a handful of local records. Acleris Hyemana is a month early,Setaceous Hebrew Character is a common moth in Yorkshire but here in Calderdale it is rarely recorded and I average 1 a year. I have been recording Small dusty Wave since 2006 in the garden and only yesterday did I realise it had not been recorded in Calderdale before.??

Nice moths,almost mistook it for something common....any other autumnal species.??

A few, will supply you with complete list eventually. Nowt unusual but Autumnal Rustic, Blair's Shoulder Knot, Centre Barred Sallow are new for me down here. A Sallow on 5 August was earliest I've ever seen it. Bought Micro Field Guide a while back which has been most helpful.
