Insect rush

  White Ermine
 Hawthorn Moth
   Coleophora trifolii
 Sphaeophoria sp.
Probably Syritta pipiens
A mix from sweeping Goat's Rue. Our Beetle expert Roger Booth was looking for the beetle Bruchidius imbricornis (a recent colonist) which he found to be abundant on site. There's some in here (the small beetles).
Busy on the insect front at the moment in these warm conditions. Added a few new species to the site inventory over last few days.
