Yesterday I met Mark at Iping Common hoping to see Heath Tiger Beetles. In spite of searching the area where the reintroduction was made we found none. We'll have to try a month or so earlier next year. Instead I found three new micromoths: Heather Neb, Dark Fleabane Neb and Horse Chestnut Leaf Miner.
