        The mild weather has lead to Red Admirals barely hibernating and can be seen occasionally now.:smile:

          Hello, can anyone let me know what this moth(?) is please? It's on a buddelia I have had for about a year and is growing like mad at the moment (the buddleia not the moth ;)).

          Also there are lots of tiny green pellets type things under some of the leaves, but not all of them and didn't know if they were connected to this moth as well?

          Thank you in advance.Moth on Buddlieha_.jpg

              WOW thank you @mazambo that's amazing, looks just like it! Is there a site to search for butterflies, moths etc.? or did you search for the description, I never thought to do that :doh:

                There's a few sites, it's a matter of filtering and finding a name for the pattern, I started with colour and what I thought was stripes but turned out to be bars and luckily dropped on the tortrix family.

                  @mazambo, thank you, that's really useful. When I find something new I will have a go at searching myself, thank you again for your assistance :thumbsup:
