Another version of The Herald Moth I posted a few weeks back.
The Herald has a wingspan up about 45mm in total and flight period is between June and November, in one or two broods. During the winter the Herald moth hibernates in dark, cool structures, It is also sometimes found hibernating inside barns and outbuildings returning to the wing again from March to June. Its habitat is woodland parks and gardens, and it's wing pattern is often mistaken for a dead, shriveled leaf. The adults are attracted to both light and sugar, and the species is fairly common and well distributed over much of Britain.
I was just saying in the forums about last nights activity in the garden and posted a shot of garden there so as to explain the actual size of it in relation to the wildlife I attract in it. But I'll post the image here too in V2 so if you don't frequent the forums you can see the size for yourself. As I said in the forums, this is where most of my wildlife photography is done because of the limitations with my disabilities.......
Hope you enjoy the images, going to put a camera in the Hedgehog hibernation box as it's empty today. Once I've done this the webcam will go live 24/7, so hopefully come the winter we'll have some permanent residents. At the moment though they're just using it the odd occasion.....
Yesterday went well at the Dr's etc, so I'm feeling much more positive and upbeat at the moment. regards to all.......
