Cwmllwyd 16 May 2014
Great night, wasn't it! Some really interesting reports already posted below.
I put out two traps: the Robinson m/v in the "garden" and the new actinic Heath trap in our wetland. 12 species in the wetland, of which, four did not show in the garden (including Devon Carpet, which seems fairly regular here). The Robinson trap came up trumps, however, with 24 species. Overall, 16 FFY's. Quite outstanding.
Ian showed us a Campion - here's one with a degree of likeness, but this one's a Lychnis!
Moth of the night for me, though (if I've identified it correctly) is this Glaucous Shears.
