Other newcomers for the year here over the past week have included Udea lutealis (29th), Coleophora hemerobiella (31st), Opostega salaciella (1st), Ypsolopha horridella, Acleris laterana, Epinotia nisella, Cydia fagiglandana, Catoptria pinella, Latticed Heath & Magpie Moth (all 2nd) and Limnaecia phragmitella, Cochylis roseana, Cataclysta lemnata & Copper Underwing (all 3rd). Coleophora hemerobiella with its spotted grey appearance and a darkish patch at three-quarters is one of the few from that family which can be ID'd easily on sight. The Latticed Heath was another very welcome first-timer in the garden trap.

Migrant activity has been restricted to a single Diamondback Plutella xylostella on the 2nd and Rush Veneer Nomophila noctuella over each of the last three nights. No exotic species here, I'm afraid!
