Saturday 24th May

Plants new in flower today were Honeysuckle, Bee Orchid, Sea Beet, Sea Fern Grass, White Clover and, for me at least, Wall Barley and Dog Rose. The moth catches were good, my best being 2 Small Elephant Hawk Moths, a Pale Prominent, Cabbage, Angle Shades, Common Swift and a gorgeous Campion. The NOA traps held; 2 Poplar Hawks, a Light Brocade, Purple Bar, Spruce Carpet, Light Emerald, both White and Buff Ermine and much else besides.
