Some September notes from the Doward


I was surprised to find a Marbled White-spot last night (Sept 21st) but PH advised me that the last Atlas has a second generation September blip on the phenology chart. Overall a quiet period here on the Doward with jut the first Black Rustic of the Autumn and a few Dusky Thorns.

Not to outdone I also had one of these bluey things on 18th.

On 8th September I thought I'd finally found something rare with this Metalampra italica  an Oecophorid first new to science in 1977 and first found in UK in 2003. But PH tells me they're now well established in Herefordshire since 2014 with 30 odd records.
