Micro moth observed on speedwell flowers.
No interactions present.
I don't know this micro-moth (yet), so can't yet agree, but I do know Langley hill very well indeed, and will look out for this one when I'm over soon. Were you right up near the rabbit warrens or lower down near the houses, harvey's lane or over towards gretton hill side?
ah, I see from your map the latter
looked it up, no confusion species mentioned, so I'll agree

There are small areas of the foodplant scattered across the top of the hill. The moths seemed to favour patches where it was growing against clumps of bushes as opposed to out in the more open grass areas. They were flying in weak sunshine on Friday and the most effective way to see them was to croutch down and keep looking at a likely spread of flowers.
yes, spotting them. I thought I was photographing a froghopper yesterday, so focussed on the wide end. Now I see it's a micro-moth
