Elvaston Castle update
Silver Ground Carpet
I'm still visiting Elvaston Castle Country Park regularly during the day and I've been finding the best places for trapping, I stumbled across one area which appears to have a colony of Silver Ground Carpet....I counted 25 but there were so many of them it was difficult to keep up. In that same area I also found Common Wave & Scoparia Ambigualis and in other areas I have found 2 more micros....Nemophora degeerella and Ptycholoma lecheana(ID thanks Harri). I've just got back from another visit during which I saw approx 20 N.Degeerella, the first Agonopterix heracliana for the site and a Apotomis turbidana(ID thanks Harri).
