In the moth world there are some iconic moths to find. One of them is the stunning Merveille du jour moth opposite.
Sadly I have never managed to find one of these moths in our recording area.
However, there was good new this morning when I found one in the moth trap! A site first.
It’s Yorkshire status is : Uncommon and thinly distributed or restricted resident.
Redwings have been arriving in force mainly from the N-N/E during the last couple of days.
And from the watchpoint I have observed passing over and beyond our area 2,198 on 13/10 and a further 1,730 today.
