Acleris literana

Postby PaulHopkins on Sat Mar 06, 2021 3:28 pm

Despite the freezing cold last night for week 1 of GMS 2021 (-1.4°C), the beautiful micro Acleris literana turned up. Seems to be a real West Cheshire/Wirral speciality, this one. Also putting in an appearance were 3 Common Quakers, 3 Small Quakers, 1 Brindled Pug and 1 March Moth.

Hi Paul,

Compared with my recent efforts you had a good night, especially with Acleris literana.

My last 5 nights of the winter GMS were all blanks, as was Friday night.

Hi Paul,

There was an Acleris literana on the wall by the trap last Thursday morning. There was also a Clouded Drab.
