Yesterday evening just after 9pm I noticed a Humming-bird Hawk-moth feeding on the lavender in front of our house. The first one I've seen this year. This morning there were 37 moths of 20 species in the trap. New for the year were The Fan-foot & Nephopterix angustella. In between downpours yesterday afternoon I visited East Blean Woods. There were a few Heath Fritillaries around the car park. I also found a couple of Four-spotted Footman and a Rosy Footman, but failed to see any White Admirals.
