Last night in Low Moor the weather was awful, a strong wind and lashing down rain. And Clare and Rich Stonehouse were walking home from work on Cleakheaton road just by the barbers at the opposite side of the road to the station. Suddenly their attention was drawn to a moth feeding on some pink flowers….but what was it. A closer look revealed only a stunning Hummingbird moth!
Now interestingly this moth is mainly an immigrant moth coming in from southern Europe and this sighting coincides nicely with the strong southerly gales we experienced in the last few days. I have submitted this important sighting to Yorkshire moths on their behalf.
So folks keep a lookout for one of these beauties in our recording area and if you see one please let me know…Thank you
