Pembrey Forest, 21st May

Very few skippers on the wing at Pembrey Forest yesterday, just 3 Grizzled and 1 Dingy seen all day - hopefully they're just late and not having a dreadful year. Also a single Green Hairstreak.

Quite a few micro-moths on the wing though, including Opsibotys fuscalis, Crambus lathoniellus, Glyphipterix fuscoviridella and Adela reaumurella. Also plenty of larval cases and 'feeding windows' of Coleophora serratella on Birch.
