Chimney Sweeper

A visit to the disused railway cutting near Salden Wood, Bucks today produced examples of Pyrausta nigrata (not recorded there previously, so far as we are aware) and Chimney Sweeper (16 counted).  Our access to this excellent site for lepidoptera in north Bucks has been under threat ever since the decision was taken to re-open the railway line between Bicester and Milton Keynes.  That day seems to be getting closer now, judging by the new warning signs which have just been posted.
