Things beginning to pick up with the warm spell from mid-May though still well behind last year in species variety and numbers for the equivalent period. Finally picked up a Powdered Quaker as new for the garden at the end of their season just as I thought it might have slipped past me for the second year on the trot.
Powdered Quaker - new for garden 27th May
Scalloped Hazel - showing the close relationship with the thorns
Nut-tree Tussock - inside the pub umbrella on my deck
Scorched Carpet - I get a handful of these each year, trapped in all months May to August
