We've reached the half-way point in the year and up to the 30th June the moth trap has recorded 180 species which compares to 228 at the same point last year. I have also been trying out some pheromone lures to try for some Clearwing Moth species. The only one seen so far in the garden is the Orange-tailed Clearwing. Elsewhere the Hornet Moth was seen at its usual site near Faversham. The Heath Fritillaries seem to be doing well in the Blean Woods. Also new for the garden this week was the Rosy Marbled.
