13 May 2015 - Dew Moths at Abbotscliffe, East Kent

Up early to head for the Folkestone area in search of Dew Moth - the weather seemed perfect, still and sunny. The first Dew Moths seen fluttering over the cliff edge, occasionally flying straight up to and then round me - some travelling further inland and going over the nearby crops.

Easily counted a minimum of 30 Dew Moth - a great way to see a new moth spp and thanks to Ian Roberts of 'Folkestone & Hythe birds' fame for his generous time spent helping guide me in the right time and place.

Several new butterflies for the year - all in all, a nice start to the day and arrived back in the office in time for coffee...
