Increase in moths species…

It’s far too early in the season to suggest moths appear to be increasing in numbers and species this year in our recording area. However, I started recording moths late this year…14th of May. And so far I have recorded 24 different moths of which 3 are new species for our area.

Above is one of the 3 new micro moths, the Cocksfoot moth found in the heather at Raw Nook. The other two were Cauchas rufimitrella &
Esperia sulphurella both at Caldene fields.

These 3 new species bring our moth species list to 319
