Moth trapping was fairly unproductive but the use of a pheromone lure quickly attracted a couple of Six-belted Clearwings. A Holly Blue was also seen in the Observatory garden.

A very uncommon soldierfly was found at the Observatory this afternoon - Hybomitra ciureai - which appears to be restricted in its range to grazing marshes and including Romney Marsh.
