Cold nights have generally kept moth numbers down but I have now reached 700 species on the garden list with addition of 2 micro species. Unfortunately the first one could only be narrowed down to being one of 2 species so has to be recorded as Caloptilia elongella/betulicola. The second one, Pammene giganteana turned up yesterday afternoon in the pheromone trap with a SKI lure. It's been a good spring for Garganey sightings at Oare/Stodmarsh/Dungeness and a Little Owl also showed well at Stodmarsh.
