Today in the garden whilst having a trim and a de-weed I noticed that a small patch of around 12 Daisies were out in full bloom in the middle of the lawn.
On closer inspection I counted two Adela rufimitrella's feeding from them and so these 'weeds' suddenly evaded my clippers....so I continued to weed around the edges and I thought, I wonder if they are still there.
They were indeed and now accompanied by up to 12 other individuals, they were dancing around this small patch of Daisies, courting and eventually mating! It was fascinating to watch that I had to try a bit of dodgy filming.
Naturally I didn't have the heart to mow the lawn!
That's not all, on two more Daisies I found the a new moth for the garden, well two Glyphipterix simpliciella's sitting there merrily and nectaring away.
Hoping to run the trap tonight.
