It was windy but not so cold as it has been of late but it was difficult to find anything as they hid from the weather.
I saw moths recorded previously like the Yellow Shell which had brown marked forewings and yellow hindwings but alas kept hidden in the vegetation giving me only a blurred record,definitely my best specimen to date. A couple of Silver-studded Blues were disturbed only to be swept away by the strong wind.
Nettle-tea moths were flying close to Elder Trees but I didnt bother to test my camera.
This strange micro was the only one of its kind found and I believe it to be the immigrant Diamond-back Moth and as a lover of the Brassica family I wasnt surprised as the site is covered in Sea Radish at this time of the year.
The area leading to Crantock beach is covered in Sea/Wild Radish
