Cunnery Wood 29th August 2015

Habitat Pond Side Cunnery Wood Mixed Trees inc Bird Cherry

Weather. Eviening 12 deg Overcast Moon Full

Comments - No advancement on species since visit from last week . Notable as the main moth of the evening was Blastocella figures being conservative estimates, still prevalent where the Bird Cherry Ermine and one Flame Shoulder present . The Eudonias are a tricky call to species and are a moss feeder at larval stage One Caterpillar believed to be an Angle Shades was seen feeding on nearby nettle at night .Cooler evening temperatures may have resulted in reduced catches as opposed to a few weeks previous

Other Entomology Included a number of tree Wasp Dolichovespula and a  Caddis one of which sent a clear message to the Calderdale Caddis Club about night time disturbance. The Caddis in question certainly Potamophylax sp likely  Potamophylax latipennis
