Livox area, Wye Valley
A lovely very warm late morning and early afternoon wander produced some interesting moths and a few butterflies.
The three moths featured here include two I've never seen before plus another I've come across just once in my short time recording.
I've yet to have these confirmed but believe they include the following running from top to bottom....
Screckensteinia festaliella - Bramble False-feather
Bembecia ichneumoniformis - Six-belted Clearwing
Oncocera semirubella - Rosy-striped Knot-horn.
If anybody would like to confirm or pass some comments on these for me that would be appreciated, thanks.
The 'Clearwing' has five 'belts' visible but I guess one is slightly hidden?
I also came across one of our largest UK butterflies the Silver-washed Fritillary actively flying at pace. This one was conveniently stopped at a feeding station, on bramble.
