Last night I had a Marbled Brown in the garden trap for the first time, another species I associate with mature oak woodland and another really worn male suggesting local migration again like with the Great Prominent. Along with this I had my first lobster Moth of the year although I was less than happy to have to identify it from its remains as the Robin has twigged onto the trap earlier this year than ever before.
At work today on outside of building at Centre for Ecology & Hydrology in Crowmarsh Gifford, there was a Green carpet and a Small Dusty Wave. Still no male Emperors to assembled females in local area. Marc Botham, Benson
