An interesting couple of days...
Yesterday (10th Nov) there was a Beautiful Plume first thing on some Lobelia which is still flowering in the outside planters .
Then Andy tipped me off about a site at Shibden Head where it was possible to find wintering/hibernating Herald Moths. I had never seen them before so this morning I decided to head up there and was thrilled to find 6 (including 3 together) on the roof of a tunnel.
These were the best photo's I could get in the circumstances - but I was well satisfied.
And this evening with the light on in the house I found 1 November Moth agg and 2 Light Brown Apple Moths on the windows. I understand this latter species was originally from Australia and first recorded in Britain in 1936.!
