While walking along the edge of the cemetery I found a Hummingbird Hawk-moth feeding on Rhododendron and on the south side a new for the valley moth in Cauchas fibulella. Also seen were Common Plume and Mompha raschkiella amongst the commoner day moths. Five species of butterfly were present with 2 Red Admiral Being the best.
New blooms for the year included Dog Rose, Bramble, Wild Privet, Grass Vetchling, Raspberry, Ragged Robin, Lesser Trefoil, Laburnum, Rhododendron, Scarlet Pimpernel, Meadow Cranesbill and Yellow Rattle.
