Paddock Wood, 26th April 2010

Yellow-barred Brindle - A lovely freshly emerged individual, the bright green fades quite quickly. Classified as local in distribution.

Double-striped Pug - I'm fairly sure that these are both this species but as always will be happily corrected.

Eriocrania subpurpurella - or no 6 in the Bradley and Fletcher list. From UKmoths: This species is quite an early flyer, being on the wing in April and May, and despite being generally diurnal, is often found in light-traps at night.
