|Nitten is the western-most dot|
Monday, 18 August 2014
I lifted the lid on an abandoned bee hive in Nitten, Mewslade yesterday to discover 100+ Lesser Wax Moth adults scurrying around, plus larvae. I've trapped in this field on numerous occasions about 50m from this hive and have never caught this species. Worth having a word with any hive owners if you know any.
Plenty butterflies flitting around out of the breeze including a couple of Clouded Yellows, plus two rather splendid female Adders under a sheet, one a particularly dark chocolate brown.
