If you have currant bushes in your garden or local wood, look now for wilted leaves. If you find them gently tease the leaf stems apart and you may find the larva of the Currant Shoot-borer Lampronia capitella. Please let know if you find it

no. 139 is Dusky Sallow. This is a really good larva to learn as it's often common in open grasslands and often turns up in the sweep net

no. 140 is Nascia cilialis. I found this larva at Burton Pond back in 2014 and reared it through and it emrged as this Na pyralid. The adult is uncommon but regular at light at Woods Mill

No Blue Underwing in last night's Arun Valley trap, but a Convolvulus Hawk made it through the rain.
