Strawberries and Cream

Wild Strawberry, Fragaria vesca
Sue and I went for a walk in Rewell Wood Sunday evening, but were too early for the Nightjars. There were clumps of Columbine in a grassy area, including an interesting purple variety.  I found 4 moths: Cream Wave, Dark Strawberry Tortrix, Red Piecer and White-pinion Spotted. Wild strawberry was fruiting.

  Yesterday I met Mark again at Iping Common car park where we enjoyed spotting and photographing the great variety of insects. I saw 8 Moths: Common Bright, Common Sweep larva, Grey Gorse Piercer, Marbled White Spot, Yellow-barred Longhorn, Speckled Yellow, Green Longhorn and Fleabane Smudge. There were also 8 bugs: Birch Catkin Bug, Birch Shieldbug, two Oncopsis species of leafhopper, Meadow Plant Bug, a Mirid Bug, Liocoris tripustulatus, a Planthopper nymph, Issus coleoptratus. Plus 4 Sawflies: Macrophya ribis, two Pamphilius species and Tenthredo livida.
