Sycamore and Yellow-legged Clearwing exuviae

 

A brief attempt with a Yellow-legged Clearwing lure at Dingestow again failed to produce any adults, although there were four relatively fresh exuviae in one oak trunk.  It's good to know that the colony in our parkland oaks is still producing adults, but I do wish I could actually see one!  Whilst searching I encountered a beautifully camouflaged Sycamore - my 3rd here and 1st since 2007.  Tapping a few oak branches produced several common Micros, plus a gorgeously fresh Acleris literana.
