Mynydd Mawr Clouded Yellow

I wish I'd found Mynydd Mawr Woodland Park ages ago - it's <10 mins from my office, has huge swathes of flower-rich habitat, and is perfect for a range of micros.  A month ago it would have been worth sweeping for things like the Speedwell Plume, Centaury Plume or the Cochylid on Wild Parsnip; it's now just a bit late.  Anyway, a visit to the northern carpark at lunchtime produced several Latticed Heath, Cydia compositella and Lathronympha strigana, 2 Udea ferrugalis and various leaf miners.  A Clouded Yellow was on show for most of the time I was there.  A super place!!
