 A couple of very warm days at the end of March gave a small boost to moth numbers, with Brindled and Double-striped Pugs, Oak Nycteolene, Yellow Horned, Early Tooth-striped and Light Brown Apple Moth new for the year. Best of all was Caloptilia stigmatella which was new for the garden. A Rambur's Pied Shieldbug on the shed door was my second record. Further afield I finally tracked down my first Orange Underwing Moth in a local wood.
