Today in the warm sunshine it was an idea day to do some moth survey work at the large patch of heather at Caldene fields where last year I found Aristotelia-ericinella a heathland species. This heather is spreading and is almost becoming an extension of the adjacent lowland heath habitat at Raw Nook Nr which is excellent news.
Anyway whilst ( looking a bit daft on my hands and knees ) searching the heather I disturbed a number of micro moths but struggled to get a proper look to ID them however, I did find a Narrow-winged Pug which I have not recorded before. But apart from it been a new species for our list it is a moth that like the Aristotelia ericenella is a heathland and moorland species.
