I joined the East Yorkshire Bat Group today to see what bats could be seen hibernating in a disused railway tunnel. Amidst the discarded codeine tablets and sheep skulls we managed to find a few Brown Long Eared Bats tucked away for the winter.
The numbers of lepidoptera* on offer where far great though with 36 Heralds and 8 Peacock butterflies. To top things off was a new species for me in the form of this Tissue (Triphosa dubitata). A new moth in January? Scandalous, I know.
*My spellcheck is trying to correct lepidoptera to teleprompter. I appreciate its bravado.
