Mouse Moth

Another moth that has certainly declined in my records. I used to catch several each year a decade ago but this is the first for three years, so again is new for the blog. Named for its colour and its habitat of running rather than flying when disturbed.
I was on the moor first thing this morning and saw the Black Redstart in the old farm on the B5057, now present for its 41st day since Ken first found it in late July and making it one of the longest residing Black Redstarts recorded in Derbyshire.
