Red-necked Footman

Monday, June 18th 2012

Members of the Ryedale Natural History Society found a new species for the county whilst walking here yesterday! The Red-necked Footman moth, a first for VC65, is the only footman moth in Britain and Ireland with constant plain black velvety wings and a red collar. Here is Brian's photo.

Friends of Chenobyl Children, Northallerton visited Foxglove today. They enjoyed a walk, did some pond-dipping, had a go with a sweep net and played in the beck with the dams. The group had two translators with them!

Special visitors!

Beetles, bugs and grasshoppers all turned up in the nets.

Finally, up on the moor the Foxgloves are starting to flower.
