Valuable milestone reached…

Moths are a great indicator of a healthy environment and a healthy ecosystem

(Butterfly Conservation)

To demonstration this point it is with pride that my moth survey work for our urban recording area of Caldene fields, Raw Nook NR and Toad Holes Beck has just reached 300 different species.  This urban area which is only about 4 miles from Bradford city centre clearly demonstrates that Urban Ecology can and does work.

The 300th moth came on the 9th of July in the shape of a Currant Pug Eupithecia assimilata
