18th May 2009

Four more new species brings the total for the garden so far this year up to 100. A belated first Brindled Pug flew before I could take a decent picture but a beautiful Common Marbled Carpet posed very nicely for me:

Two Large Nutmegs were very different from each other:

Finally the first of the minors turned up. Almost certainly this is a Marbled Minor but will have to be go into the records as 'agg' without dissection.

Best of the rest (15w Actinic)

Red Twin-spot Carpet - 1
Eyed Hawkmoth - 1
Pale Mottled Willow - 1
