Another migrant

A rather smart Scarce Bordered Straw was on Platform 1 at Cardiff Central railway station this morning, the first Cardiff record since the big influx of 2006 (unless there have been any others recently).
 And here's a photo of last Thursday's male Gem from the garden, which doesn't quite live up to it's name.

Finally, I managed to get a decent photo of Cosmopterix pulchrimella from the mines I collected at Port Eynon. This one certainly does live up to its name, pulchrimella meaning beautiful. I've now had 6 adults emerge from the 7 mines I collected.

  1. That's a little beauty, I checked some Pellitory growing along a hedge bank in Horton on the weekend without success.
