A meeting with a colleague in one of the apple orchards (as you do) at East Malling, provided a passing opportunity to look at some of the mini-beasts loafing the apple canopy.
Attention was quickly diverted on to something small on one of the outer branches - a fantastic Red-belted Clearwing!
After collecting the camera to get first shots, I then managed to get Adam Whitehouse and John Clements in one the discovery - see Adam's blog for his version of events and images of the 'Clearwing Twitch'!

|Common Rustic or Small Clouded Brindle
|Still not sure...!
|Cypress Pug - smart!
|Tawny Speckled Pug
|Small Fan-footed Wave

A quiet night up at Queendown - but this Barred Rivulet (I don't think it's a Small Seraphim) was a nice highlight.
|Purple Clay or Square-spotted Caly (can'e see why it's not the latter)
|Is this just a Riband Wave siting strangely..?
pug spp - small, large discal spot, dunno...

A short walk with Max around this lovely woodland area produced a few mini-beasts including this Southern Hawker and some interesting looking snails.
