Inspired by Chris's photos of Micropterix aruncella (below), I searched several flower laden hawthorns at Cwmllwyd, but there was no sign of the micro. Nearby, however, in the long grass, I found Glyphipterix simpliciella - Cocksfoot Moth. I apologise for the poor quality pictures; my excuse is that the beast is only 3.5mm long and it was very active!
