Avon Valley later June

A night's trapping in ideal conditions on Wednesday at Tiddesley Wood WWT under mostly thick cloud and start point of 17 degrees C. Best macro of the night a fine Spinach (which away from Stoke Prior has been seldom recorded in VC37 in the last decade) and was surprisingly a site first.

A Pretty Chalk Carpet now seems frequent along AvonValley was also seen.
At least 4 Endothenia ericetana proves a welcome colony east of the River Severn and torpedoes the trio of previous county records. 2 Assara terebrella consolidates last July's discovery here. Nearby on Monday, 4 Sitichroa verticalis were flushed from limestone grassland at Windmill Hill NR and proves a colony at a site with one previous record in July 2011.
