White-barred Clearwing in Merthyr

I've just had a reliable report of White-barred Clearwing in Merthyr (from Colin Plant). The report itself is from private land but given that there is plenty of Birch and Alder around. Apparently they like to feed nectar on wild roses. If you are in the area it would be well worth keeping a look out. Oh, and this is the first modern record for the species.

  1. Aha, I'd heard about this off the record but hadn't heard who the recorder was - no doubt about it then. Certainly one to look out for!
