As it was warm and I had an hour to spare I thought I would try my butterfly transect at the cress beds. Just at the start a big "thing" fluttere3d past me showing red - ah red admiral I thought but it didn't look quite right and luckily it settled to reveal itself as a Red Underwing moth. That was the first surprise and the second was a new moth for the year at the site - a Small Copper.
Just 5 species in all, Large White, Small White, Red Admiral, Comma as well as the Small Copper.
