Cwmllwyd in the rain
Drizzle and breeze during the evening, but no prospect of frost, so I set up the MV trap in the lee of the barn to see what might venture forth. By dawn, a gale was blowing and bringing with it a fair amount of rain, but nevertheless the trap had attracted 23 macromoths of 11 species, none of which were firsts for the year, but including a second Red Sword-grass for this month.

Taking a nap! (Foot and lower part of hind leg dark red-brown: Waring).
