In the last couple of days I've had a probable Common Rustic moth in the flat and today I released the Small Tortoiseshell butterfly  which has been sitting on the wall for the last week or so as it was flying around.

In the last few days the station has produced very little apart from a few Harvestmen and what might be a Strawberry Snail.

Finally on my way home this afternoon I saw a large-ish black and white hoverfly hovering around some pavement weeds in Richmond Road which, although it didn't settle for a photo, looked almost certainly to be Scaeva pyrastri - a migrant species I don't see very often.
