  1. This is the third record of Pseudoswammerdamia combinella and the first in the north of the county. These little uns are out there!! ;-)

  2. Some quite early moths there; the Clouded-bordered brindle is the 6th earliest in over 1000 records. The Tawny shears is the 3rd earliest in 180 records, only 12 of which were recorded as Pod lover (subspecies capsophila). Pod lover is mainly coastal, preferring rocky coastlines, so I presume that the woodland was not far from the coast.

  3. Interesting Tony. Yes it was close to the coast.
