Lots of Brindled Beauties visiting Thrupp, Oxon, just now: three in my Robinson trap this morning and this whiskery-looking gent yesterday. Happy memories also of Rev Jospeh Greene's Essay on Pupa-digging after narrowly missing this 21mm example with my spade in the veg plot.
Last night also brought my first Powdered Quaker of the year plus 19 Common Quakers, 11 Hebrew Characters, one Small Quaker, one Clouded Drab, an Ophion wasp and a small fly with a large orange tummy. Martin Wainwright
