|Nomophila noctuella, Westcott 8th June|
This morning, following a very pleasant hour visiting the Honourable Member for Thrupp, I called at Gavray Drive Meadows in Bicester, Oxon which is a local wildlife site that has been under threat of development for many years now. I was looking specifically for Forester Moth and, sure enough, three were found even though it was dismal, overcast and breezy. I have difficulty spotting green moths in green fields at the best of times, but if anything poor weather makes them a little easier to track down because they simply sit around on any vaguely pink-coloured flowers (today's were on ragged robin and thistle, but clover is another favourite).
