Westcott, Bucks

It has been quiet in the garden of late but another Dotted Border turned up on Wednesday night while last night saw the appearance of five moths:  Agonopterix heracliana (1), Tortricodes alternella (1), Pale Brindled Beauty (2) & Chestnut (1).  So, nothing of particular note but any moths at all are a welcome sight at this time of year!  The Tortricodes alternella was a rather typically nondescript male (as opposed to the nicely marked female illustrated back on 3rd February) and takes this year's garden tally to 21 species.
