Look for Lobesia littoralis on Thrift
I was recently sent a picture by Mike Corby of Lobesia littoralis from North Bucks. On confirmation Mike went and looked at the Thrift plants (only a few) in his garden and found another moth on the plants. So, if you have Thrift plants it is worth having a look for the moths and also look in the flower heads for a silk cocoon and possibly a protruding chrysalis skin were the moth has emerged. Some times the shed chrysalis will stick out from the flower head.
