Was it all just a dream?
Did I really get so lucky ten days ago? I had to go back up the Cennen ravine to find out!
In fact, the real reason for a return visit was to see if there are sufficient Grey Scalloped Bars up there to confirm the likelihood of a breeding population, rather than just vagrants from elsewhere. And there are, I think:
The selected trap site: possibly the only level ground within a square mile! Getting ready to set up.
Grey Scalloped Bar: two more individuals were found.
Only 33 moths of 15 species were found (my little actinic trap is never very prolific), but they included Smoky Wave x 2, so I'm really pleased: another first for me!
Crambus lathoniellus was also found.
