Me too, please!

Had this in the Burial Park GMS trap this morning; notable pinkinsh tinge (more-so than the photo shows). Shoulder to wingtip 15mm. Any ideas?

Also, this micro from my garden the night before...

Meanwhile, my year list increased to the tune of Waved Black and Yellow-tail in the garden and Pale Prominent and Drinker at the Burial Park (a very popular female - 6 males in the trap with her!).
Also 2nd gen Nut-tree Tussock and Diamond-back.

  1. I reckon the first is a Suspected and the second Recurvaria nanella

    1. I agree with both of those IDs. Recurvaria nanella is quite a good record for Bucks.

  2. Thanks Peter. That'd be two lifers for me right there!

  3. Thanks Dave. I have the right habitat for the Recurvaria, albeit on a small scale!
