Will turned up the next day, like last time, to give me a better look at what we managed to catch last night. A few of them are yet to be identified and had us scratching our heads to what they could be.
|Heart and Dart|
|Oak Tree Tortrix|
|Barred Fruit Tree Moth|
Before we had a look at the moths, Will took me over to Mousehold for a butterfly survey. The clouds did cover over the sun on occasion, but it wasn't a bad survey with 14 individual butterflies recorded, which included large skippers, speckled woods, meadow brown, red admirals, large white and small tortoiseshells. Best of all though was a green hairstreak, one of the late emerging individuals.
|Female Black-tailed Skimmer|
|Common Blue Damselfly (we think)|
