A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Hello Andrew, a rather worn specimen but my guess is that it is Paratalanta hyalinalis. The species is certainly flying locally at the moment (I saw a handful at College Lake a couple of nights ago). It is found on decent chalk grassland across the Bucks Chilterns so you are close enough in Longwick to have had a wanderer from somewhere like Grangelands, especially on the easterly winds we've had recently.
Thank you Dave - much appreciated. A bit quiet last night but three very fresh diamond backs.
