A Welcome....

A welcome to Steve Clarke, who lives at Cwm Llwyd on the northern edge of Mynydd Du, and who sends this photo of a blue-bordered carpet that he caught in recent weeks. It`s a local (though perhaps under-recorded) species in Carmarthenshire. Its caterpillars feed mainly on alder.


I`m sure that Steve, given his excellent moth trapping position amidst good habitat and next to a huge upland block, will be getting many more good moth records in the future.
