Summer is clearly the time for the largest volume of moths in the year but the weather is fine one day and tipping it down/cold the next. If you've followed the Open golf just lately, you'll see what I mean as that's only a few miles from me.
However I've had some goodies but mainly moorland species that have paid me a visit (so they must have traveled at least a couple of miles as the moth flies). A rather bedragled Marbled White Spot and today's pristine Scarce Silver Y have been highlights for me.
|Scarce Silver Y|
|Elegant Tern - Pagham Harbour|
|Dark Sword Grass, a migrant moth|
|Donacaula forficella, a moth of the reeds (some on the nearby canal)|
|Small Square Spot or is it Fen Square Spot based on the appearance date between the two batches of SSS that I get - the debate continues!|
