More NFY, and probably one lifer
Numbers still not huge in our garden in Wolvercote, Oxfordshire, but 18 species on 15th May and 19 on the 16th weren't bad going, and NFYs coming in good numbers -- including Orange Footman, Red and Dark-barred Twin-spot carpets, Vine's Rustic and Grey/Dark Dagger. What I think was probably the first Narrow-winged Pug for the garden showed up on 16th May.
A few are giving me some grief in terms of identification: I think we have below a Brindled Pug, a fairly standard Common Carpet and a perhaps rather dark Hoffmannophila pseudospretella, but would be grateful for confirmation/other suggestions!
