Chaddesley Wood netting

I went to Chaddesley Wood yesterday pm to look for Argyresthia semitestacella without success but netted 10 Elachista bisulcella off the beech plus perhaps 25 Neps, a few were retained and some still to be determined but tityrella or hemargyrella confirmed so far. It was very warm work so I stopped for a pint of Butty Bach on the way home, what a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Also, last night at home, I had my second record of Nemopogon koenigi, formally wolffiella, thanks again to my wood piles!   Patrick Clement
