Colour marking of Silver Ys?

Postby JohnHarrison » Wed 18 Aug 2010 20:13

Two colleagues of mine have reported seeing a Silver Y at Barns Ness today with an orangy red, oval mark on the back of its head. Does anyone know of any tagging projects which may account for this?

Hi

There isn't a coordinated scheme for marking moths, but I have asked a couple of folk. Not heard back yet though.

Thanks Mark, would be interesting to know and whether it could be traced.
