Sorbus mines at the Wyndcliff


A day GPS-ing the Wyndcliff Whitebeams on Friday gave me a chance to look for mines on these scarce trees.  One tree held mines of Phyllonorycter mespilella and another had what I guess is Stigmella mespilicola, each of which has single previous VC35 records, both from the Wyndcliff in the past.  The Wild Service Tree near the carpark also had presumed S. mespilicola mines.
