Pembrey Forest...again

Nine days after my last visit to Pembrey things seem to have moved on quite a bit. Dingy Skipper is now out in good numbers, with around 40 seen during the day's surveys. Also smaller numbers of Grizzled Skipper (c. 10) and Small Blue (c. 15).

Plenty of micro-moths around, including Opsibotys fuscalis in good numbers, and a few Grapholita jungiella.

 The only macro-moths seen were Cinnabar, Silver Y, Grass Rivulet and this pair of Ruby Tigers.

  1. Glad you're having some success in Pembrey, I was beginning to think that this year all butterflies were white!
