11th March

Calybites phasianipennella here last night becomes the earliest record on VC37 MM following singles last year on 30th and 31st March. Must be a colony here in gardens. Clear off-white dorsal streak and correct coloured leg-band arrangement clinched it. But an easy one to overlook! 39 moths  comprised of NFY Clouded Drab, Small Quaker, 2 Oak Nycteolines plus 26 Common Quaker, 3 Hebrew C, 2 Beautiful Plumes, Acleris notana/ferrugana and Light Brown Apple. Tonight also looks good before light rain at midnight. Steve Whitehouse (Warndon)
