A DIARY OF THE WILDLIFE OF THE WANSBECK VALLEY AND BEYOND
Saturday, 27 May 2017
Reading my mate's Stew's blog Stewchat on list right hand side he was looking at Buttercup flowers and they were dotted with micro moths called Cocksfoot moth. There are thousands of Buttercups in flower at the moment around Morpeth but I didn't have time to look through the meadows today but along the woodland path of High House Lane woods I looked at the Buttercups there and they were dotted with a different micro moth called Micropterix calthella. I will be looking through the Buttercups over the next few days to see if I can find more or other species.
