Red-tipped Clearwing Moth seen by the River Severn at Bewdley
A Red-tipped Clearwing (Synanthedon formicaeformis) was seen recently on the banks of the River Severn  upstream of Bewdley. This is a Nationally scarce moth whose larvae live in the trunks of various trees such as Willows including Goat Willow, Grey Willow and Creeping Willow. There are very few records locally
