Dreams do come TRUE!

I won’t forget this morning!

The sun was shining and skies were blue and I was just starting to record the moths caught in the moth trap.

There was nothing special at first then I came across what I first thought was a Dusky Brocade but it just wasn’t right.

Anyway further research showed the moth to be a Light Brocade Lacanobia w-latinum.

Now comes the excitement… as the moth is RARE!

It’s status in Yorkshire is described as ‘Very rare or migrant/wanderer.

The species is mainly southern so it maybe a rare migrant that has moved due to the weather patterns we are having at the moment. Either way this is an excellent record for our recording area and to state ‘ I am over the moon…Well is just an under statement!
