Two Porpoises were feeding offshore.
There has been a bit of interest recently in a new species of moth to Britain which appears to have been hiding in plain sight for a number of years. What was thought to be just one species, The Fern Horisme tersata, has now been discovered to be two species with the second been given the English name Cryptic Fern Horisme radicaria, alluding to its hidden status. Today I thought I would search my archive of moth images for Ferns and the first one I found appears to show the correct features for Cryptic Fern although the identification features are clouded in uncertainty so whether any will be accepted without genital determination remains to be seen.
