I'm waiting for a reply from our County recorders, holidaying in Wales or MonMOTHshire (suit yourself !) but this could be only the 3rd county record for Tree-lichen Beauty
A Dark Sword-grass and an increase in Silver Y moths indicates that a look-out for an exotic migrant might be on the cards given the current warm southerlies.
