Had a potter around the garden last night and found a freshly emerged Vine's Rustic. A few steps further I was scanning some old wicker cladding that is half rotting in the corner of the garden where it has been used as a makeshift fence and found 8 Emmelina monodactyla all sat within half a square meter of one another. Moth trap was as per usual empty with the exception of a pair of Ephiphyas postvittana. One thing I have gained in my Didcot garden is a nice colony of Scarlet Tiger Moths, the larvae dotted about the garden feeding on a wide variety of plants in the absence of any of the usual suspects (Comfrey or Green Alkanet).
