Welcome to my world..............

The purple patch continues....

After the rain stopped, the evening remained muggy with full cloud cover and no wind.  Wanting to avoid the little biting bugs at Pilmoor, I went to Sessay Wood again, this time 200m ENE of Monday's site.  It was another good night with some more significant records.  I had another Lobesia reliquana the 2nd VC62 record following the first at Pilmoor, just over a kilometre away.

The other exciting moths were three Eucosmomorpha albersana, which I had trapped a single in 2011 at Kilburn, and there was just one other in the previous 25 years, and only a handful before that in Yorkshire.

Others of note were five Orange Footman and a Marbled White Spot.  Also of note was a distant calling Quail heard several times.
