Heatwave continues

 Swifts hawking over the mound
 Jersey Tiger
 Ruby Tiger
 Caloptilia elongella ?
 Dichrorampha petiverella?
Kent Black Arches (thanks Steve!) - a first for Beddington Farmlands
Over 32 degrees yesterday and a stormy night produced another busy night in the bugry. Must have been some kind of emergence of adult Agonopeterix alstromeriana (a common farmlands moth) as there were 60+ in the trap last night. 116 moths of 34 species last night including Jersey and Ruby Tiger, Flouced Rustic, Common Rustic, Tree-lichen Beauty, Scalloped Oak, Oak Hook Tip and a few I can't identify- above (any help much appreciated).
