Waldridge - End of July report

Still progressing with the square, now up to 874 though still relying heavily on the moth trap and moths in general. Amongst these since last time were two new for the garden (and the square) Hypsopygia glaucinalis, a  distinctive micro moth and Clay Triple-Lines.

Hypsopygia glaucinalis

 In addition to these a few more plants were found, most of them beginning with 'E', two Willowherbs, 1 in Wanister Bog together with Common Spike-rush and a few Marsh Horsetail well away fromthe big patch of Water Horsetail, and the other Willowherb, American, an increasing species, found as a pavement weed. The latter I've had in the garden before but not this year. The other plant is another increasing Alien, Cut or Fern leaved Bramble.

Rubus laciniatus
Throw in a fungus Gnat (Sciara hemerobioides) and thats my lot for July.
