Scarce Bordered Straw - First for Beddington Farmlands

 Scarce Bordered Straw- a first for the farmlands last night. Identified by Steve Gale (Cheers Steve!). An immigrant from Southern Europe/ North Africa that occurs mainly in Southern Britain as an annual migrant in variable numbers. Increasing since the 1990s. 
 Red Underwing- at the old Vicarage

 Vine's Rustic (on left, the most numerous species in the trap at the moment with up to 15 a night) and Scalloped Oak  
Wheatear- on the mound at the farmlands in the week
