On a walk along White Holme Drain, mainly looking for the beetle Carabus nitens (which at the second attempt this spring, I didn’t see again), I did see several green tiger beetles and I’m fairly certain my first ever emperor moth.  It flew by at great speed as I walked along the track between Turvin Road and White Holme Res’.  I half – heartedly chased after it but it was soon lost over the moor.
