The land of the True Lover's Knot.
I left the actinic trap at the 500 metre (1640 feet) contour on Banc y Cerrig pwdron last nght. This is in SN71 (SN715182) on Mynnyd Du. I must admit to being a little disappointed this morning to find only four species in and around the trap. 18 True Lover's Knot(s), along with Dark Arches, Ingrailed Clay and a solitary Antler Moth made up the entire catch. Beautiful morning, though, provided a good deal of compensation for my efforts.

From Banc y Cerrig pwdron (translation, Ian?) looking west towards the Tair Carn ridge.
Looking down to Gwynfe (The White Plain?) at about 6.00 a.m.: a late start, I know, but this is not the place to go solo in the dark!
