The moth trap had a few more species when I checked on Saturday morning, new for the year being -
Twenty-plume Moth and
the first two (of very many not doubt) Heart and Dart.

Spent most of the day pottering around in the garden where lurking in the front border was another moth, a migrant this time, my first Silver Y moth of the year.
Other invertebrates seen included a Wall butterfly and another Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum) that visited the Buddleja globosa.

Surprisingly, the commonest hoverfly in the garden today was Merodon equestris, one of the hairiest and most variable of the UK species.
