WHITLINGHAM: Trowse Woods loop

 Mid-August 2020

I don't spend too much of my time on patch at the Trowse end, so Cathy and I went for a late afternoon walk up into Trowse Woods, along the road past Whitlingham Hall and back along Whitlingham Lane. The woods themselves were quiet and too dark for many insects to be flying, but the sunny areas of the route gave up several new species for my site lists. These included leaf mines of the sawfly Heterarthrus fiora in Sycamore, aphids on Rosebay Willowherb (Aphis salicariae) and an adult Selandria sawfly, probably S. serva. We also saw a Willow Emerald near the Little Broad.
