A trip up the moor in the late afternoon produced some good moths. We counted 30 Beautiful Yellow Underwings on umbellifer flowers long the track opposite Flash Lane (cannot remember what we call it!). Plus a couple of Small Argent and Sables were flying and a few Middle barred Minors.
The Beautiful Yellow Underwings showed well but the strong breeze made photography very hard!
Out of the 30 seen we saw 2 or 3 of the “grey” sort.
Getting the yellow underwings was difficult. The moths were so warm they constantly quivered their wings making sharp pic’s even harder!
Small Argent and Sable (female).
This huge hairy fly was interesting… I have no idea where to start in the ID though!!!
