Took a trip to the reserve last night. Chris Manely was hoping to photograph Ashworth's Rustic so I thought I'd offer to show him the best parts of the site.

Fairly cool and breezy night but was enough for plenty of Ashworth's Rustic. I had around 30 in my heath traps.

Other nice moorland moths included Light Knot Grass, Northern Rustic, Grey Mountain Carpet, Scarce Silver YPleurota bicostella and a probable Eudonia murana.

  1. What a great species list, full of the more unusual and choice moorland species.

    You certainly chose an excellent evening for Chris Manley to look for and photograph the Ashworth's Rustic.
