Saharan storms bringing Christmas goodies

Syncopacma polychromella in MV trap at CEH Wallingford last night (first for VC23). Worth keeping an eye out for with going on for 20 records over last couple of nights mostly on south coast (along with lots of other cracking migrants including Eastern Bordered Straw, Crimson Speckled and Spalding's Dart) but with one in Swindon as well. Tiny thing and easily overlooked: I actually missed it at first as I have got very lazy checking through mostly empty traps. Only noticed it when putting egg cartons back into the trap! Marc Botham
