As part of my Local Wildlife Site project work I have enjoyed surveying several lovely wildflower meadows in Monmouthshire and Caerphilly recently.
The sunny weather has brought out the butterflies and moths and I have seen Small Heath and Small Skipper butterflies on the wing.
I also managed to capture an image of this lovely Mother Shipton moth. Mother Shipton was a witch associated with the folklore of the 15th and 16th centuries, and the moth is so named because it has an image of the face of Mother Shipton (with a long nose!) on each wing.
