VC First

Turns out that the Cicones undatus I posted yesterday is a VC55 first. Seems to be a previously rare beetle that is now quickly spreading northwards (for a small beetle).

I ran both garden traps last night which boosted the numbers a little, but overall catch was pretty good at 60 of 10sp. Diurnea fagella, Dark Chestnut, Hebrew Character and (best of all) Pale Pinion all new for the year.

Nice PP Mark, I had a Spring one this year. Usually I have to wait until Autumn.

Ironically Matt, of the seven garden records I now have all are in spring apart from one in October 2013.
