V-pug

Pete Skinner, fresh from his travels, put his trap out last night and recorded 47 moths of 17 species. Amongst them was a very early V-pug. The previous earliest county record was on 30th March. In the new edition of the Waring and Townsend field guide, the flight period of the first generation is given as Apr - Jun, which is a month earlier than in the previous edition.
