Acleris literana
Grey Birch

   Not too bad last night despite a cool breeze. Shuttle-shaped Dart and Grey Birch were NFY and my second Acleris literana of the season was a smartly marked individual, if a little worn.

Dyseriocrania subpurpurella


I have always assumed these heavily spotted forms of subpurpurella to be f. fastuosella, but I'm not entirely sure.

Also had Caloptilia betulicola/elongella but as I have already recorded both species I shan't be chopping it to find out which of the two it is.
