Whetstone Calling

Picked up a few new for the year in the traps on Saturday night, initially I thought 7 species and then I found a Chinese Character a bit later in the morning in the small birch that is directly adjacent to my MV spot. Also a couple of butterflies added today.

Esperia sulphurella - a few of these flying around in the day as well

Iron Prominent

Shuttle-shaped Dart

Scalloped Hazel

Sadly the Holly Blue was a bit knackered (although it could fly - a bit)
