I spent this evening close to Wild Moor for the last Red Grouse survey of the season. With a lack of grouse activity I started to wander around the heather to look for moths, thinking I may have the chance of finding an Emperor Moth. This proved to be a success when I found this female resting on some heather.

The evening was rounded off in some style with a drumming Snipe on one of the wetland flushes, now a very rare species on the Long Mynd.
