|White-strap Sober (probably), Syncopacma larseniella (not gen det) |
Yesterday at Rewell I found a micromoth that I have seen before but cannot determine the species without dissection of the genitalia. It is Syncopacma species, probably a White-strap Sober (S. larseniella) as this has been confirmed confirmed in Rewell Wood in the past. A highlight was spotting a young fox foraging in the distance. it came towards me and I kept taking photos until it was full frame just in front of me, then probably heard the shutter, looked up and dashed off. I've made a movie of the shots.
Other moths seen: Common Marble, Common Yellow Conch, Dotted Ermel, Long-winged Pearl, Red Piercer, Satin Grass-veneer, Treble Brown Spot. I saw an ant dragging a larva to its nest.
