From the Clifftop

During the current spell of warm weather, daily moth trapping has finally got my Fairlight garden year-list to over 200 species [204 today], markedly fewer than last year when I had reached 250  on this date.

However it's quality that counts and today I was very surprised to find the very distinctive micro. Cynaeda dentalis.  resting on the power lead to the bulb. I suspected I wouldn't be able to pot this one and indeed it made off, so this picture is of the only other one I've seen, at Dungeness.

This is a Viper's Bugloss feeder, we have a few plants in our garden, but this was most likely a wanderer from Rye Harbour
