Moths continued...

When John was unpacking the traps at home, he discovered this moth which we had missed…

It is a Brindled Green, yet another new record for the parish and a rather uncommon Yorkshire species.
The other two new moths were this Orange Sallow - a very attractive autumn species

and this micro Acleris laterana

On the bird front there was still a Spotted Flycatcher by the river yesterday evening.

I hadn’t seen them along this stretch before so I assume this may be a migrant rather than a local bird?
