Immigrant moth interest has dwindled as the week's gone on, with little evidence that the moths being seen/trapped aren't just lingers. An Alder Moth at Sweethill yesterday was only the second record for the island and, given the north-westerly breeze, had perhaps most likely wandered out from the mainland. Bordered Straws continue to be trapped/seen visiting valerian after dark in small numbers, with others found randomly by day as well; a Ni Moth at the Grove was best of last night's immigrant catch.
Belated news from a couple of days ago (16th) of a male Red-veined Darter at Kingbarrow Quarry.
