Parc Slip yesterday

There was nothing flying at a cool and cloudy at Parc Slip yesterday - so instead I looked for Coleophora cases and was pleased, after quite a lot of searching, to find a single case of C. paripennella on knapweed. Only the 7th county record I think.

More dramatic was this female Emperor, found at rest on the ground by the visitor centre.


  1. Nice one George, that is a cracking pic of the Emperor ...

  2. First sighting of an emperor at Parc Slip according to my records. I'm not at all envious...
