More Westcott Moths

New for the year here in the garden on the 28th were Notocelia (Epiblema) roborana, Acrobasis (Trachycera) suavella, Maple Pug & Dusky Thorn, while last night (29th) brought Agapeta zoegana, Pandemis corylana and two surprises:  Elachista albidella (new for the garden and only the second record for Bucks) and Dark Spectacle (not a species thought to be resident in Bucks and the only other record for the garden was during September 2006 when there were lots of migrants about).

Elachista albidella, Westcott 29th July

Agapeta zoegana, Westcott 29th July

Dark Spectacle (and Spectacle for comparison), 29th July
