Orange Swift

These moths and the followng bugs come from a evening at Wainwright Close Meadow. We've been calling it 'Ron's Meadow', our friend and fellow moth'er from the Hastings Moth Group folks found this little jewel and has adopted it :). It's a lovely tiny meadow which has loads of lovely meadow plants and a hedge surrounding it of small trees and black/Hawthorn, a large oak, and a pond with lots of pond plants smack in the middle of an industrial estate. Its council owned but is being managed by another soul…

A couple of nice moths for the night, which just goes to show its not always about the quantity :) We also had a May Highflier, Waved Umber, and Lime Hawk.
