Blimey Andy, that looks like a good tally, 50+ species!

Is there anything that's new or unexpected?

A fantastic night. I am sorry I couldn't make it.

Andy Brian & Cheryl

Thank you all very much ( on behalf of) the Happy Snappers for your time and expertise and for a very well run and informative evening . If we have another event I am sure we can orchestrate some food Pie & peas . petrol , canopy etc. All finds now will assist the growing list for the LNR

Great Night,,,loved the I - Pad many thanks for that,,,its great when the weather is perfect so everyone can see just how many species are out there...Plenty opportunity for photo's minute it was 21.00 the next time I looked it was 2.00,,,what was the small bug sp..??

AndyC said...

Buff footman was the only new species for the site..but Southern and Silky wainscot are not found anywhere else in Calderdale,Angle striped sallow ,Sallow Kitten and Canary shouldered Thorn are real crowd pleasers..........Thanks to all who turned up..Also ran the actincs in the reed bed which was very interesting..

Colin D said...

The small bug Andy TBC I think is Phytocoris varipes - A (or poss P.ulmi) Common but has just appeared also at other locations Widespread and often common in rough grassland where it feeds on the flowers and fruits of a range of plants, although absent from the far north of Britain.

AndyC said...

Colin could you put a pic up or email me the bug at
Great pics......Cheers

Colin D said...

Hi Andy - Certainly no Problem Phytocoris varipes and I think Phytocoris ulmi ( Query TBC ) are on the reserve Just running through the card and will post various to you shortly. What is the last Moth I found it on the sheet whilst you where moon lighting :-) in the reeds for the Actinics ???

Thanks again Andy for a great night if you could send a list of what was found in the atinics and where, we would appriciate it as it will give us an idea where to start cutting the reed, a good list also in total . yours Graham
