2221 The Mullein Shargacucullia verbasci

A  Mullien Moth caterpillar has been found this week in Todmorden (*thanks Ross) and a Eyed Hawkmoth has been seen in The Tod area (thanks Portia).All the local butterfly species have been seen in good numbers this week . Small Tortoiseshell have emerged from some cats I found at Lightcliffe quarries today , loads and loads of cats on nettles at Northowram and Adults seen copulating yesterday will surely make for another great summer for this species.
