A nice fresh Small Clouded Brindle was a scarce visitor to my Stoke Goldington (North Bucks) garden recently (30th May), but a couple of garden firsts provided added excitement. The pug, I presume, is Freyer's (31st May). I believe the large Crambid is a female of one of three spp. The Hants Moths website has a spitting image assigned to Chilo phragmitella, but female Donacaula forficella and Schoenobius gigantella can apparently be very similar; the costa profile being diagnostic? As always, opinions welcomed.
Finally, after debate about a previous Agonopterix, a classic arenella turned up on 30th.
