Wyre Netting

Ancylis myrtillana
Epinotia fraternana

As a special treat I took my wife Sam for a couple of hours netting in Wyre, yesterday evening and we totalled over 40 species, even though we ignored the rush-feeding Coleophs. Nothing really outstanding but, thanks to Billy's recent post we did sweep some fir branches resulting in half a dozen Epinotia fraternana, quite a good record even for Wyre.

  1. Following your lead I tried suggesting a mothing "Special treat" to my wife. Didn't go down that well....(-:
    Great photos as ever, by the way.

    1. Thanks Pete.
      Two nets are better than one, it might be worth persevering. (Bribes work well!)
