Butterflies and moths

More September Moths

A warm night with the temperature not dropping below 13 celsius. The Dark Sword Grass is an immigrant species from the Continent. This individual could be the offspring of an adult which came over to Britain in the spring or a fresh arrival from abroad. This perhaps likely as we have had a couple of very warm days with southerly winds. Stangely it left a considerable quantity of fluid on my hand! It smelt quite pleasant rather like caramel. The Red- line Quaker is a species which flies only between September and November. The Snout moth is very distinctive with delta wings and well, a snout!
