White-spotted Sable Moth Anania funebris at Bonsai Bank; 19 May 2019

Seeing recent pictures of White-spotted Sable Moth, Anania funebris, photographed at Bonsai Bank near Canterbury, was too much temptation. Heading out with Max, I asked him to look out for a smart black and white micro...and after two minor false alarms, he came up trumps!

Fantastic eh?

The Dukes of Bonsai Bank; 5 May 2019

Nice trip to Bonsai Bank today to visit the last (I think) colony of Duke of Burgundy in Kent. Lots on  the wing - many showing down to just a few centimeters in the cool-ish temps. Many Common Lizards (which were Lacerta vivipara but aren't any longer) including this dull individual and several of those stunning Red-and-black Froghopper (Cercopis vulnerata). All in all - a nice trip out.
