I also caught a Nematopogon sp. (to be looked at later) and saw a few `tent nests` of the bilberry pug, formed by spinning terminal bilberry leaves together. Some passed on to Barry Stewart about ten or more years ago were reared to adult moths.
After traipsing up and down the steep bilberry slopes (which were steeper than in the photo above - Sam may recall how steep the Troserch slopes were from a bryophyte survey he carried out there), I felt like going somewhere easier ie flat!
I went to that part of the Llanelli Millennium Coastal Park that is located between Burry Port and Pwll, but the strong, gusty wind made sweeping and beating difficult, though I did flush a dingy shell. Seeking shelter from the wind, I examined the various tree plantings and `homed in` on some areas with aspen.
I noted a few folded leaves, perhaps larval retreats for small chocolate-tip possibly? I seek the opinion of George here, given his experience with this moth near Cross Hands. A photo is given below.
