Small Angle Shades

I found a Small Angles Shades in the trap a couple of days ago – a new species for me.

Although I’ve never seen one before it is a common species across the UK. Its caterpillars feed on a wide variety of plants but it appear to favour bracken which is unusual.

  1. Hello Adrian,

    Ah, yes one of my favourites.

    The Victorian names are a work of art in themselves aren’t they?

    The other day noticed the hoverflies seemed to be out and out at last. Took a set on a foxglove.

    ​Forks of ​pistil!
