A bit Windy......25/04

.....But a couple more to add as temperatures drop and a N Easterly wind blows. Checking the books, Small Dusty Wave is supposed to be a June flier. Last year I caught my 1st one on 4th June, so must be a contender for another early VC30 record.

As well as this a 1st for the year Turnip Moth- I will be plagued with them later, as I live in a market gardening area.

The result- 18 of 10 species-
  • Shuttle-shaped Dart- 6
  • Hebrew Character- 3
  • Muslin Moth- 2
  • Small Dusty Wave- 1- Year tick
  • Nutmeg- 1
  • Garden Carpet- 1
  • White Ermine- 1
  • Turnip Moth- 1- Year tick
  • Pale Mottled Willow- 1
  • Brimstone Moth- 1
