Trapping at Tyrwaun, Pwll

Although tonight will probably provide better trapping conditions (and I`ll be out trapping somewhere), I could n`t resist setting up a couple of traps in the garden last night (23/6), catching 50+ species including Brussels lace (photo), double line (x2), red-necked footman and those shown in the photos below. As usual at this time of the year, up at the `crack of dawn` to inspect the catch, but rewarded by a family party of nuthatches passing through the garden.
