Ovenden Moor

I spent a couple of quiet hours up there this afternoon in the sunshine - how warm it was !

Red Admirals x 22 at least - and all  > west low over the moor.

Also 2 unidentified butterflies/moths on the heather moor - they wouldn't settle, most frustrating, I could not get to grips with them. At first I thought they were Small Coppers (size wise and brown on the wings) but it just doesn't seen right for them on the top there near the wind-farm. !

They could have been vapourer........very similar to Small copper in flight

Thanks, that sounds more likely than Small Copper Andy.
I had another one at Mixenden Reservoir this morning came across the reservoir landed in a large willow next to me but could I find it. I will not be beaten !
