More new species for Gors Road
I spent a few minutes looking hard at the Lead and July Belle illustrations before I realised the subtle lines of colour and hooked forewing tips meant it was something else.
Shaded Broad Bar.
But a tiny pinkish moth looking like a Wainscot could only be a Small Rufous.
I also spent a lot of time staring at illustrations of Tortrixes before I looked elsewhere and managed to identify this handsomely marked micro.
