Crescent Plume and Common Swift

Common Swift, Korscheltellus lupulina
On Wednesday 15th June I did my Mill Hill transect: Brimstone, Adonis Blue 6, Holly Blue, Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock, Meadow Brown, Small Heath 3, moths: Cinnabar, Straw-barred Pearl 3, Common Purple and Gold, Hook-streak Grass-veneer, Garden Grass-veneer. One Small Heath was an aberrant.

  On Thursday I visited Steyning Downland Scheme and found several Large Skippers, a Meadow Brown, an old male Adonis Blue and a Small Blue. Moths seen: Burnet Companion, Common Carpet, Dark Strawberry Tortrix, Bright Bell, Hook-streak Grass-veneer, Unmarked Neb plus a tiny (10mm) green larva on a grass stem. Beside the path to Mouse Lane I found a Small Barred Longhorn, a Common Nettle-tap. I also found two new moths for my galleries: Crescent Plume and a Common Swift lying upside down under a nettle leaf.
