Update - Broadholme, Lincolnshire

Some interesting records in the last week with temperatures reaching double figures at last but the Easterlies have returned.

Orange Underwing Moth - 3 seen including a pair in cop on the ground, first record for my 10KM square.

Small Quaker
Shoulder Stripe
Diurnea fagella - Moth trap out at last.

Bucculatrix nigricomella - Leafmine found on Ox-eye Daisy

Following bugs/beetles found in or on Greater Bulrush whilst successfully searching for Bulrush Wainscot larva, thanks to the LNU County recorder for the identification.
Chilacis typhae - Bulrush Bug
Galerucella nymphaeae/sagittariae - need to check if there are any water lilies.
Psammoecus bipunctatus

List now stands at 135

Galerucella species

Psammoecus bipuctatus

Bucculatrix nigricomella

Another bonus was the bore-holes of Lunar Hornet Moth found on cut Sallows, looking at the photo I think there is a pupa in the hole. Will check for fresh frass today and for adults later in the year early July.
