Halesowen, Sunday 7th May

Dichrorampha sedatana
Today's sunshine certainly had an effect on moth activity in our garden with at least a dozen Dichrorampha sp. around the Tansy plants. I only had time to closely examine and photograph one but I expect they were all sedatana.
I quick circuit with a net in late afternoon produced my second garden record of Grass Rivulet in the 'mini meadow', plus Micropterix aruncella, Cauchas rufimitrella, Caloptilia syringella, Phyllonorycter viminiella and Phyllonorycter stettinensis x3.
