February


The following Moths were first seen flying this month in the Birchfield Moth Project in the Upper Rochford area of the Teme Valley.

Be aware that flight time emergence is dependant on may issues, including weather and temperature. As such, in subsequent years, the Moth may appear in months sooner or later than currently shown for 2008.

Also be aware that many species have two (or more) broods per year. In general, the FIRST appearance in the calendar year is shown, in the knowledge that the Moth may have a second brood later on in the year, in which case, it has not been re-photographed.

Also to be borne in mind is that any individual flight periods may run for more than one month, i.e. from one month to the next. Again, there is no second photograph, in this instance.

The colour coding of the name box of each Moth, gives an indication of how common, uncommon, scarce or rare the moth is considered to be in Worcestershire UK, from data complied by the County Moth recorder and others in 2007.

Photos not to scale.
