An hour on the cliff top at Clarach this morning with a pleasant breeze blowing the butterflies along.
Moths spotted were Cinnabar larvae feeding on Thrift seedheads as well as Ragwort, Six-spot Burnets, C.culmella, Silver Y, Celyph lacunana and the four below.
Photos aren't the best, sorry!
Butterflies were, Small Tort, Meadow Brns (lots), Sml Skippers (quite a few), Small Heath (2), Lg White (1), Dk Grn Fritts (around a dozen) and one Greyling!
Superb photo of C lixella! We've only got 8 records of it from vc44ReplyDelete
Thanks Sam, I took it using the 'yoghurt pot technique'. I may explain that at a later date....I do get asked if the moths are in a bubble bath or how I get them to levitate though! ;-)Delete
