The first of the 834’s (from 2 found by Tony and collected at Blackhouse Wood NR on the 20th March) emerged o/n in pristine condition. Oliver kindly inspected the rather dried spinning’s about a month ago and confirmed larvae were still alive. I was worried they were taking too long to pupate but shows just how persistent some of these micro-beasts are. Silver Y in garden trap last night made up for the desperate May showing so far. A Puss Moth actually came to a lit window last week.
