Garden year list moves on nicely

Although nothing like the bumper haul at the beginning of last week I have still had a steady stream of additions to the 2012 garden year list over the last few days, including:

Nephopterix angustella
Nephopterix angustella

Pale Oak Beauty
Pale Oak Beauty (Hypomecis punctinalis)

Argyresthia brockeella

Orthopygia glaucinalis (I know it has a new name...)
Orthopygia glaucinalis

Clay (Mythimna ferrago)

July Highflyer - reared through from larva

These two not new for the year but any excuse to post images of Hawks:

  1. Lovely collection of images again Dave. Nephopterix angustella I would like to see again one day, such an unsual looking Pyralid.
