|Avon Meadows: Tuta absoluta|
Saturday, 31 October 2015
A final survey of Avon Meadows Wetlands, Pershore last night came up with a surprise pristine Tuta absoluta which, was more likely from the nearby horticultural glasshouses of the Vale of Evesham than the Iberian peninsula, despite that damp southerly breeze. Other more expected species were a minimum of 12 Large Wainscots, Brick, Beaded Chestnut, Red-line Quaker, 2 Garden Rose Tortrix and a Scrobipalpa costella. 4 of these were new for the reserve.
