Bancyffordd 17/7

An actinic tube replaced my MV at the top of the garden last night. Fewer moths and fewer wasps. Everything was a bit wet suggesting low cloud/mist or light rain in the early hours. My second Purple Thorn and remarkably only my second Yellow Shell. Rosy Rustic was new for year along with what I think might be a Small Clouded Brindle, perhaps someone could confirm from the photos attached.

  1. I've been waiting for someone more experienced than me to respond, Andy, but I'm with you on this one, it doesn't look right for C/LC Rustic and some on-line images for SCB look very much like yours. I shall be scrutinising CRs more carefully in future, although it's getting a bit late for SCB according to the books.
