|Flounced Rustic, Westcott 27th July|
The next potential confusion species will be the infinitely variable Square-spot Rustic which should also start appearing any day now (there have been early records already from elsewhere in the country).
Two nights ago I got my first Straw Underwing of the season and last night also saw the appearance of an Ear Moth. Despite Bucks having no records for any of the Ears apart from oculea, it is still necessary to get some of them critically examined so I tend to keep back one per site per year, just in case.
