Avon Meadows Pershore

As the usual fortnightly meet had been cancelled I thought I would go anyway on Friday 21st as the weather seemed promising.  It was quite busy but I only stayed 3.5 hours. Highlights were;  Orthotelia sparganella, Phalonidia manniana x2 and  Endothenia quadrimaculanaOthers were Dog’s Tooth, Old Lady, one Elachista maculicerusella, 2 Scrobipalpa costella,  Lobesia abscisana, 4 Bulrush Wainscot, 5 The Crescent, one Southern Wainscot, 2 Gold Spot, Limnaecia phragmitella (The Misteron Moth) and a Donacaula forficella. Plus the usual mid-August trap rattlers! A very young (tiny sized) Smooth Newt showed up by the bottom of trap was released in nearby damp rushes later. The next Meet is the 4th September.
