A few from this week

Quite a few of these Phyllonorycter quercifoliella on oak trunks at the moment both in Bankhouse and Long woods. I had to place the camera underneath them pointing skyward to get a side shot.

The only moths I could find at Copley meadow were lots of these tiny Grapholite jungiellas. Their gleaming white hindwings are clearly visible in flight.

A regular at my woodpile on the allotment are these Esperia sulphurellas (the larvae feed on dead wood).

And one from Norland village, it appears to be feeding on soil for minerals?
