Spent a few hours wandering around Carmel today hoping for a marsh frit but no luck (only saw one butterfly - a green-veined white - the whole time is was there actually). I was a bit more successful on the moth front however:
- plenty of Micropterix calthella and Cydia ulicetana - an Ancylis badiana - a cinnabar
- a silver-ground carpet
- a common carpet
- a brown silver-line
- a water carpet
- a drinker moth caterpillar
There were also a few i wasn't sure of:
Is this Eudonia mercurella?
Cauchas rufimitrella? It's behaving correctly but i can't see any sign of the reddish crown...
Disturbed from rushes, the closest i could get to an id was Glyphipterix thrasonella?
Another one disturbed from rushes and very badly photographed. Bactra lancealana?
