A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Hi Nigel, it is relatively common and widespread. There are more than 100 Bucks records from most areas of the county except the far north and its absence there is probably just under-recording. There are concentrations of records in the Chilterns as well as in the ancient oak woodlands of the old Bernwood hunting forest, hardly surprising as its larval stage uses St John's Wort which is itself quite widespread. I get it annually in the garden here at Westcott and we had at least a couple at the Dancersend BIG meeting last night.
Hi Dave, thanks for the info.Nigel
