The following are moths I took for ID or new ones to photograph during daylight.
There were at least four Sandy Carpets among the more common Flame Carpets and Silver Ground Carpets.
I took another small carpet species home in the hope it would finally open it's wings for ID, and when it did I was pretty surprised to find this gorgeous little Small Yellow Wave - another new one for myself.
There were two of these Bird's-nest Moths (Tinea trinotella) to light, I wonder which nest they used.
The latin name refers to the three spots of unequal size on the forewing.
Definitely a moth-er's moth this one, the tiny Daisy Bent-wing (Bucculatrix nigricomella) - the first adult Bucculatrix I've ever seen at a trap. A worn and tatty moth but the white eye-caps at the base of the antennae help narrow this species down. Food plant Ox-eye Daisy.
This Straw Conch (Cochylimorpha straminea) may be a first for Calderdale - unless somebody knows differently. Food plant Common Knapweed.
And the fifth new one was this rather attractive Brassy Tortrix (Eulia ministrana).
Mainly for Barry's list are the following that I took home to ID:
Crambus lathoniellus x 3 (not the rare grass moth I had originally thought it was!!!)
Mompha epilobiella x 2
PLUS two unidentified moths:
Also lots of micro Caddisflies to keep me on my toes!
