moths and dragonflies

Have trapped 4 times at Carmel in June, most recently last night.  Numbers of species have been generally low with anything from 12 to 25 species in the trap.  Rather similar in fact to the same period last year. Nut tree tussock, clouded silver, barred umber, scalloped hazel and brimstone moth have been amongst the commonest and most consistent.  Quite a few have been represented by just a solitary individual - peach blossom, white-pinion spotted, pale shouldered brocade, peppered moth, purple thorn, green carpet and brown rustic amongst others. 

Also, details of dragonfly courses below  (hope links etc work)  :

The British Dragonfly Society will be holding two courses entitled ‘Identification Skills for Delivering Dragonfly Walks’.  These are at WWT Llanelli and Rhydymwyn, near Mold.  These courses are aimed at people working in the environmental sector with a focus on biodiversity or ecology.  They are also aimed at volunteers who give guided walks or talks or who would like to do so in the future. 
Draft programmes and course information are available on the link below:
There are a limited number of places and these will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.  Please book soon to avoid disappointment.  To book, please contact the BDS Treasurer, Brian Walker via e-mail (  If you do not have access to the internet, contact Claire Install on 07792 231925.
