Birch mines add two new species

Two new micro moths were added to the garden species list bringing the total to 361.
Both mines found on the few yellow Birch leaves still hanging on the tree so were quite easy to spot.
Stigmella luteella and Stigmella sakhanilella, both ID'd by A. Banthorpe, VC30 joint recorder

16th July 2016 .... Small Waves

Having caught 3 small wave species in the traps I thought a comparison shot might be good for beginners.
If you think herding cats is difficult, try herding moths without the aid of a blast or two of CO2.
I got there in the end after much coaxing and cussing ...
