Dioryctria sylvestrella at Wolverley

Dioryctria sylvestrella   Photo S. Wright
Sue Wright trapped a Dioryctria sylvestrella in her Wolverley garden on the 17th August, the first record of this species in VC37. This conifer feeder is a migrant species and was taken at a time of migrant activity but it has been colonising some areas of the country so may be that conifer woodland at nearby Kingsford Country Park should receive some attention next year?
