Much cooler than of late with a niggling wind so numbers were down.
A mere 34 Shuttle-shaped Darts cluttered up the traps with a dozen Turnip Moths.
A Broad-barred White was a nice find as was my second Tawny Speckled Pug of the sub species fulvata with the red wing patches for easy I.D.
Two more pugs rolled up which I will illustrate below....
DOUBLE-STRIPED PUG but the one below, which is about the same size looks to have a different wing shape, although the markings suggest it is another D.S. Pug
However, a year first garden micro was discovered during the morning trap inspection through bleary eyes. 1329 Donacaula forficella
Yet another reed feeding species and I can only think they are coming from the fairly nearby River Ivel which is lined with reeds along its route through Biggleswade.

I am ahead in the all important wine bet. But that crafty bugger has a few micros stashed away in his fridge ready for the recorder !
