On Friday morning I returned from the Wyre trapping session and counted up the garden trap before retiring for a well earned sleep. Perched on the upper perspex was my first garden record of Bordered Straw. The last one in our vicinity was a single at Dave Barnett's house, just across the road from us in September 2006. I am going to pass it to Steve this evening so he can take it to show the trappers at Chaddesley. It is not the best specimen, but very welcome nonetheless. Also in the garden recently I recorded Lychnis, Eyed Hawk (still waiting for a Striped), and the pale elachista Argentella.
