On Friday evening I found more new micro fauna at Rewell Wood: a Longhorn beetle (Leptura aethiops), a micromoth: the sauve Red-necked Footman, a Common Ground-hopper and a Springtail. I finished the evening watching with fascination a Large Yellow Underwing nectaring on Foxgloves. During the day I had found a smart looking Wasp (Ancistrocerus nigricornis) on our window.
