Maenol Moths Still Missing

Well, a few more came to the party here last night, but those that weren't visiting Scotland must have gone to the South East of the County for the night!  Never mind, with 20 species (plus a few micros yet to be identified) it was the best turn-out for over two weeks, and I had another first for me in the form of a Pinion-streaked Snout.  Others of note included Pine Carpet, second-generation Heart & Dart, several Black Rustics, and a beautifully-marked Flounced Chestnut - worthy of a photograph - no Sallows, though.

I am due to attend the Moth ID Training Day at Cilgerran on Sunday and am wondering if any of my fellow Carms bloggers are going, or am I playing a lone hand?


  1. I think the absentees might just have flitted across Mynydd Llanllwni to Brechfa - I'll be posting in a minute...

    All 6 Carms places for the Training Course were filled, so you won't be alone. It should be a useful day.

  2. I'll be there Chris - will be good to meet you. I had a similarly beautifully-marked flounced chestnut at Parc Slip last night.

  3. Yes, good luck to all Carms attendees!

  4. I will be there - just hope it will make id'ing micros easier - still struggling with some macros!
