Swallow-tailed moth

Lade - 0700hrs - warm, dry and sunny, e 2 - Common Footman and Swallow-tailed Moth were both new for the season in the garden moth trap this morning which brought up the 100th species of the year. A circuit of the local patch produced little of note apart from plenty of Common Blues along the main track beside south lake and a cracking show of Dark Mulleins adjacent to north lake, comprising over 20 spikes.
