All new and an update

The year continues to deliver new species to the patch. This bug had no intention of staying to pose for a shot. As soon as it saw me, it made a dash for the undersurface of the leaf. It's the Tarnished plant Bug - Lygus rugulipennis:

And two new moths came to light. This one is the gloriously-named Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing - Noctua janthe:

And the (probably migrant at this time of year) Setaceous Hebrew Character - Xestia c-nigrum, a nettle feeder:
I had some spare time due to the very stormy conditions over the weekend, so I updated my species index, which now stands at 1375 species.
