3 July 2017...Near Spyway Farm, Langton Matravers, Purbeck
Lacklustre supply of pulse-quickening macro-moths on the Purbeck limestone today. Nevertheless, good totals continue to feature but to my dismay not one single pug!! At best Festoon, Chinese Character, Single-dotted Wave, Galium Carpet, Barred Straw (out in force), Small Phoenix, 2nd gen Early Thorn, Muslin Footman, Garden Tiger, L-album Wainscot and a posse of Clays. These only bettered by a delicious Lappet Moth, a Kent Black Arches - beautifully ornamented with a thin twisted flourish of black calligraphy across the wings, and yet more Reddish Light Arches which is having a good year.
