2082 Garden Dart, (female - gen. det. Charlie Fletcher), Skircoat Green allotments, Aug.22nd 2010. Captured by day. This is my only record.

2102 Flame Shoulder at the far west of North Dean wood on June 8th 2016. Netted at dusk whilst searching for Bilberry Pug with Andy Cockroft and Colin Duke.


2107 Large Yellow Underwing eggs on a Hawthorn leaf found at Tag meadow, Cromwell Bottom, Aug. 11th 2017. On one occasion a few years back I found a single batch of over 1000 eggs on a single leaf, this time however there is a mere 676.

2107 Large Yellow Underwing eggs hatching, Aug. 15th 2017. Four days later and the eggs are hatching in synchronicity - needless to say 600+ went straight back outside to fend for themselves.


2107 Large Yellow Underwing larva at 4mm, Aug. 30th 2017. One of the above batch grazing on the underside of a leaf - they were all VERY slow growing.


2107 Large Yellow Underwing feeding on a sugar mixture in the garden, July 26th 2006.


2109 Lesser Yellow Underwing nectaring on the garden Buddleia (right) along side a Large Yellow Underwing, Aug. 14th 2010.

2110 Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing nectaring on the garden Buddleia, July 25th 2006. A rather spooky pair of eyes to the left!

2132 Neglected Rustic larva at 12mm long swept from Heather at Norland moor on Mar. 21st 2016.

2132 Neglected RusticJuly 20th 2010. Reared from the larva pictured above.

2134 Square-spot Rustic netted at dusk in Bankhouse wood, Aug. 17th 2010. Seems quite regular at this site.

2136 Gothic, captured on the garden Buddleia, July 6th 2017. After recording eggs on the garden Buddleia twice in years gone by it was nice to finally connect with an adult - perhaps in the act of egg-laying herself.

2154 Cabbage Moth eggs found on cabbage at Skircoat Green allotments, June 1st 2011.



2154 Cabbage Moth eggs and larva, Aug.1st 2015. They were found on a Brussel Sprout plant in the garden earlier that summer. A welcome photo opportunity of larvae hatching.
