Prior's Meadow

2 traps on Thursday night kept me busy on Friday morning with just on 100 species, including around 20 fresh pink Rosy Footman on the outside of one trap.
Hellinsia osteodactylus

Zeiraphera isertana

Scarce Burnished Brass
There was a single Scarce Burnished Brass which is always good to see (and I didn't see one last year) and, new for me, a Small Goldenrod Plume Hellinsia osteodactylus which seems to match exactly with the description in Sterling & Parsons and seems to be the first VC41 record since 2000.
Also one I hadn't seen before was what I think is Zeiraphera isertana, but it seems to be very variable.
