12th May 2013 ... Horse Chestnut Leaf-miners ...

If you are one of the few that hasn't seen 366a Cameraria ohridella, the Horse Chestnut Leaf-miner, then now is the time to head for your nearest Horse Chestnut tree where you will need a calculator.
I went to the local Stratton school open day yesterday to buy some plants and check out the working farm that they have run for several years now.
I parked under a "Conker" tree and when I returned to the car it was covered with said moths.

PIGLETS at the school farm.... always a hit with the kiddies on open days .....



Despite still having about 30 of the above moths on the car upon arrival at The Dells, none were recorded in and around the garden traps last night, probably because of the chilly wind.
The only new moth for the year was a Nutmeg and I was surprised to see a Small Quaker next to it in the trap, very late.
