Last Friday

On Friday evening on the 26th, I trapped in the garden until midnight potting a few micros to do later. I had to drive down to Kent at 4am so I took the micros with me to id at my leisure that afternoon. One of the micros proved to be quite a rare one in Worcs-Cydia conicolana (number 1269). The only confusion species is cosmophorana -not recorded in Worcs, which I'm sure I have eliminated. I have retained the specimen for confirmation-perhaps Oliver or Patrick would be kind enough to study it after I bring it along to a forthcoming mothing event.
Had a few entertaining day flying moth sessions at Sandwich Bay, netting Cream Spot Tiger, Oblique Striped, Dew Moth and Restharrow.
