Later on the night of the 4th June a small dark dumpy micro with broad wing tips and faint creamy yellow hairs on the back of the head/neck was potted off an egg tray. I gave it to Oliver Wadsworth for further scrutiny and the moth was confirmed as Lampronia fuscatella (which I had strongly suspected) and was only the 6th VC37 record. Although there is a 20 year old Silver Birch in the garden, two of the previous county records were adults in nearby Trench Wood in 1977 and 1988 and the 4th June was a warm night with a slight easterly breeze. The image below was taken by Oliver.
An Alder Moth came to light on 31st May was only the second record at Warndon
