Firstly , many thanks to Spock and Dean / DDD for correcting my moth ID from yesterday , it was in fact a Silver Ground Carpet . Undeterred , I'll have another try today .Got out for an hour or so before lunch , and the afternoon showers , and spent the time up on the Common , in very windy conditions , which were no help with photography . It was warm enough , but very little was showing on the wing , so I went looking for Brimstone caterpillars . I found very few eggs this year , so wasn't expecting to find many caterpillars , but , using the aid of looking for
Once again , it is thanks to Dean / DDD for identifying the moth as Alabonia geoffrella , and for reminding me that I have infact found this species before , but I'm afraid it doesn't mean I remember them !
