An ermine which could be spindle was recorded provisionally. Migrants were Silver Y & Dark Sword-grass [new SS99]. An Ear sp. was taken probably The Ear. Other notables were Double Line [5], Satin Beauty [2], E. pallidata [Chequered Straw Pearl], Gold Spot [2], Ling Pug, Small Rufous & Pebble Hook-tip. Good numbers were seen of Dark Arches & Lesser Yellow u/w: 100+.
