Bringsty Common 23rd May

Whilst Patrick ventured further afield than I, I spent the afternoon with 2 botanist friends recording on the Common. Whilst they assembled an impressive 196 species of plant, I managed to spot Micropterix aruncella (around Hawthorn flowers), Glyphipterix fuscoviridella in large swarms in the shorter grassy areas, Glyphipterix simpliciella on buttercup flowers, a few Crambus lathoniellus, one Cydia ulicetana, one Celypha lacunana then Grass Rivulet, Common Carpet and rather a lot of Brown Silver-line flying up from the bracken. Of the non-moth invertebrates, a Minotaur beetle was the nicest. Peter Hall
