A visit to the North Norfolk coast mid week enabled me the opportunity to visit a site where a species of probably the strangest family of moths, the Clearwings, had been found in recent years. The Six-belted Clearwing hadn't been seen in Norfolk since 1823 but was refound back in the summer of 2007. These amazing creatures look like a cross between a tiny wasp and a hoverfly, and only resemble a moth when seen up close, fantastic!!
