Highlights among the macros included Scorched Wing (3), May Highflyer (8), Sharp-angled Peacock (2), Cream Wave (2), Chinese Character, Scorched Carpet and Grey Birch (2). The latter appears to be new for ST07.
Among the micros, Elachista subalbidella is new for ST07 and only about the 9th county record (plenty of Purple Moor-grass, the foodplant, at the site). We also caught this Agonopterix which I've been puzzling over - possibly a worn arenella though it keys out in MOGBI Vol 4 as subpropinquella. Any thoughts?
