Moth trapping has improved with the warmer weather this week, but at the end of May I had only recorded 56 species this year compared to 126 at the same point last year, which shows the difference between a good and bad spring weather wise. This week I've recorded a new micro species: Elachita argentella. I also made a successful visit to the Bonsai Bank KWT Reserve for the Duke of Burgundy, Dingy Skipper and Green Hairstreak Butterflies, and the White-spotted Sable Moth. In the garden the Stag Beetles have appeared this week and a couple of Slow Worms have turned up for the 2nd year.
