Last night's catch at Saron, Llandysul
I got 28 species last night, usual ones for time of year - plus a couple new to me (Lunar Underwing and Vestal (see photo re latter) plus two Brown-Spot Pinions (see picture below of one of them with the Rosy Rustic). The other photo is a caterpillar I found eating willow last week. Oddly later the same day I found a much darker, brown version which looked the same apart from the colour. It is the caterpillar of the Dot Moth (thank you to George for the correct ID in his comment). This is a species I regularly catch here in the moth trap.
