Chaddesley Wood Sat 2nd April

A first venture into this WWT Reserve this year for Patrick and myself saw cloud creep in late evening and even some light drizzle by 22:00 in about 9 degrees C. 22 species were recorded including Early Tooth-striped, Water Carpet, Red Chestnut, Frosted Green, a late Dotted Border, Semioscopis avellanella and at least one Acleris ferrugana.

Water Carpet, Chaddesley Wood 2nd April


  1. I had a late Pale Brindled Beauty here at Norchard, and an early Pale Tussock, both on Saturday night. The weather looks a bit more predictable going forward- April showers!

  2. Amazingly there were 3 fresh Pale Brindled Beauty at Catherton last night but our crew left before before the Northern Soul disco stated!
