Riddlesden 20th June

Howdo All,
Not done a great deal of trapping so far this year but last night got my first Elephant Hawk-moth.


Also got a few Buff Ermine, Green Arches, Heart & Dart, 
Bright-line Brown-Eye, Sword Grass, Dark Arches, 
Barred Fruit-tree Tortrix, Light Emerald, Marbled Minor Agg,
Silver-ground Carpet, Small Fanfoot, and a Spectacle.

Hi Mark, great to hear all is well in Riddlesden , was it a Sword grass or red Sword grass.Sword grass is a very rare moth these days and only accepted with a photo.?? The bottom pic is Dark Spectacle (one of my favs).
Cheers

Hi Andy,
Thanks!
I'll check my images against the books for the sword grass and the dark spectacle.
