June 20th ... New garden macro's and an unwelcome year first Tortrix.

Two new macro moths were added to the ever growing garden species list ... Marbled White Spot last night (Sunday 21st).
Almost missed it among the Marble Minors in the egg boxes this morning.
BF 2410 ... Marbled White Spot
Clouded Brindle was added on Saturday night.
BF 2327 ... Clouded Brindle

It's always nice to look in the traps and find a new or a year first species for the garden, well not always nice.
This little Tortrix guarantees that a proportion of my Victoria plums will be tenanted by bright pink maggots again later in the year.
