1,753 moths of 203 species were
counted/estimated this morning from 4 traps run overnight at Penclacwydd and
with another dozen or so left to be id’d later, unsurprisingly this represents my
best catch of the year. There were no major surprises, but the following list
gives an indication of the numbers and highlights. As I had to be back by 9am,
there wasn’t much time for photography, although I grabbed a few shots of some
of the more interesting specs...
