26th May 2013 ... Nice mix

Following a cracking day in Bedfordshire, with the first BBQ of the year (which is one more than last year !), I had high hopes for some good moth species last night.
The big full moon didn't appear over the garden until midnight and it remained quite warm up until then.
Temperatures plummeted to a chilly 4 deg soon after the witching hour but still a good mixed bag was recorded ....
The afternoon found grandson Louie head down in the grass and bushes searching for new species at a £ a time before overeating and coming to a halt, but not before he produced a Dichrorampha species which could be "plumbagana" or "plumbana" and therefore cost me a quid ! Confirmation asap.
A new for year micro was added in the evening in the shape of Eudonia angustea and a Pug or two that need a better look.
Confirmation ... 1276 Dichrorampha plumbagana.
