  2. I seem to be getting a Brindled Ochre in my garden just once a year - always a nice surprise!

  3. I'm jealous, the only part of a Brindled Ochre I've seen was a single forewing lying on coastal grassland in Devon (presumably the remainder was eaten by a bird).

  4. There are only 6 county records for Brindled ochre, 5 from Aberporth in 1982, 83, 85, 2002, and Sarah's in 2013. The other was seen at Llechryd in 2011. All records were for singletons between 26/10 and 17/11.
