Sunny Sunday 27th
Last weekends weather got me into daytime micro-search mode and first stop was the Clerkenleap bridge viewpoint car park to search tree trunks and lower branches for Norway Maple feeders. A few spiders were spotted lurking in the crevices but no moths. A worn Phyllonorycter harrisella was a false alarm in an early sweep of overhanging leaves and then finally on the very last sweep, one of the targets - a superb almost mint Ectoedemia sericopeza, one of the easier Neps to ID by eye.
