A beautiful wanderer

 
 
A Beautiful Snout that came to my MV at Dingestow Court on the night of 24th June was a major surprise, because its foodplant (Bilberry) grows nowhere in the vicinity.  The nearest Bilberry I know of are on the Trellech Ridge, at least 6km to the SE.
 

 
 
Dingestow's 3rd Lilac Beauty (and first since 2003) was another highlight, whilst Lackey, Light Arches and Catoptria falsella made their 2016 debuts.
 
 
A short session of beating trees produced the Tortricids Grapholita (Cydia) janthinana and Pammene fasciana, as well as two fresh Diamond-back Moths.
