Conditions were not optimum (I retrospectively wish that I`d trapped on Saturday evening) but some useful records were made.
At the home trap, an old lady moth was a nice surprise and the best of the macros. Also noted among the microlepidoptera were diamond-back moth, Caloptila stigmatella, Ypsolopha sequella and Dioryctria abietella. Apart from the diamond-back moth, there was a rush veneer and a single silver y as representative migrants.
The trap left at the saltmarsh edge (right next to but not visible from the busy Wales Coast Path/Sustrans cycletrack) was also rather disappointing with rather few moths - rosy rustics, purple bar, two yellow belles and many of what I believe is Cochylis atricapitata.
Cochylis atricapitata was frequent too at the `Pembrey Burrows- S` trap, here accompanied by many hedge rustics ( a local and scarce moth on the adjacent acidic coalfield of SE Carms), plenty of rosy rustics, several Archer`s darts and a single white-line dart; another yellow belle was also present. The best moth, though, was a solitary bordered straw.
