Kithurst hare and Arundel comfrey ermel

Leafhopper, Evacanthus interruptus
On Sunday 23 August I visited Kithurst meadow and disturbed a Brown Hare on the bank. He dashed across the road and up the opposing bank.
  On Monday 24th I searched Arundel WWT car park and found plenty of microfauna, including second brood Comfrey Ermel moths and a colourful new Leafhopper, Evacanthus interruptus. I also found a new micromoth, Blastobasis vittata, in the flat.
