There has been a spate of Clifden Nonpareil records over the weekend - four sightings, continuing to last night but, alas, none for me of what must now be my `bogey moth! Arfon Williams had two separate individuals at his garden moth trap north of Ffarmers - the latest being last night (27/9); whilst over the weekend, Jane Hand caught a worn specimen at Rhandirmwyn and Lizzie Wilberforce also had one in the Amman Valley. I`m still waiting for this beauty of a moth with blue hind wings!
Perhaps we`ll now talk green rather than blue...I did a little bit of incidental leaf-mining over the weekend but have nothing novel to report. However, a couple of useful records were made - a new site for the spreading micro Phyllonorycter platani, which was found on London planes next to People`s Park, Llanelli and the continued presence of Callisto denticulella on apple leaves in my current garden.
