Micro Moth of Heather 35.017 BF797 Neofaculta ericetella

An interesting day scoping for new sites potentially of interest for recording  on the way stopping off elsewhere on the way back this moth was found flying over Heather and Bilberry a small skittish moth moving form heather to heather and merging inconspicuously. Pennistone Hill   Unfortunately my camera is duffed and could only react quick enough to get these .Thanks to Richard for confirmation

0797  Neofaculta ericetella ABH  35.017 





Also notable in passing at this location to all Yorkshire Folk is a miraculous village that suddenly appeared from nowhere !!!! Made of Wood . Its there for about a week or 10 days if you are up that way Pennsitone Hill Filming

Slightly of the theme of Moths this Tephritid Fruit Fly about 4- 5 mm was seen displaying on Marsh thistle Cirsium palustre

Hi Andy,
I'm afraid not, just an avid consumer of anything moth related and like to stick my oar in whenever I can. Things have been pretty slow down here in Surrey.
