Maenol, Saturday & Sunday Nights
Both nights were quite productive, three new species encountered - Northern Spinach, Waved Carpet, and the large Tortricid Lozotaenia forsterana. Also notable were Lilac Beauty and Cloaked Carpet, the second appearance of each this year, the first V-Pugs, several Rosy Footmen and a Swallow-tailed Moth. Buff Ermines have faded away and White Ermines reduced to singles per night - the summer is progressing fast!

I would be grateful if someone familiar with the Waved Carpet could confirm the identification for me because it's the first I've seen.
