In the heat-wave now. Heart & Darts everywhere, a few Shuttle-shaped Darts, one Common Swift and a few Common Quakers. New arrivals for this year that we've seen in previous years were an Udea Olivalis, a Bee Moth, a Straw Dot, a Shears, a few Treble Lines and a single member of an early brood of the Setaceous Hebrew Character. We've seen it before, but since it's such a pretty tiny creature, here's a picture of one of a veritable infestation of Green Pugs. The Buff Ermine (male again) also put in a repeat appearance.
Our two complete newbies were a quite large pair of Small Waved Umbers and a Rufous Minor.
