Thank you for that. I did

Thank you for that. I did look at the description for Knotgrass in my Chinery and it suggests a flight time of June to Sept so I discounted it. Maybe they are getting caught out by the decent weather...?

Definitely!

May is given as the start of the flight time in Waring and Townsend. Lots of things are early, this year, though, given the warm temperatures, so the date is fine.
