NORWICH: London Midget

24th October 2017

On Tuesday I met Adam & Karl for a visit to the Norwich Beer Festival. There wasn't much in the way of new bird related beers, but I did have Jo C's Stout Robin and an Eagle Ale, whilst Adam pointed out that People's Raveningham Bitter had 'Raven' in the name, so we tried that too. I did manage to get a new species out of the trip, finding a mine of the London Midget moth, Phyllonorycter platani on a fallen London Plane leaf. Now is a good time to find these mines if you are interested in micro moths/pan-species listing. I suspect they are on most of the plane trees around Norwich.
