|Common Emerald, very rare in North East England and new for VC68 North Northumberland|
|The whole of Northumberland VC67 and VC68 status of Common Emerald before my catch.|
The other one, I look for annually as it does occur more frequently in Northumberland than the Emerald, it is the Southern Wainscot.
|Two shots of the Southern Wainscot including the forehead band plus the most recent distribution map of Northumberland.|
Also new for my garden was a micro, Gypsonoma dealbana. I thought I had recorded this species before but my MapMate never lies...
This puts my garden moth list at around 579 species. Certainly puts butterflies into context!
