9th May 2015 ... Small Ranunculus and Black and Red Froghopper

The last two nights have seen very low moth numbers in the traps, mostly Shuttle-shaped Darts.
The one saving grace was a year first Small Ranunculus.
This Red Data Book species is one of my regulars and has been increasing over the last 3 or 4 years so I'm hoping for a good showing this year.
Small Ranunculus
A new bug for the garden was found this afternoon on a clump of Coriander.
A Black and Red Froghopper, Cercopis vulnerata.
