I am sure that the movement caused by all the restless yellow underwings actually disturbed a lot of other moths and prevented them from settling but, nevertheless, at least 65+ species were recorded, with a toadflax pug probably being the best among the macro-moths. This species occurs along the Llanelli coast and some urban/brownfield areas, where its small and colourful caterpillars can be found feeding on common toadflax. Other macros included four-dotted footmen, southern wainscots, tawny-barred angle, white-line dart, marbled greens, scarce footmen, least yellow underwing, Chinese character, lime-speck pug, cloaked minor, double kidney and Brussels lace. Again, the only migratory representatives were some silver y`s and singles of rush veneer and dark sword-grass.

Conditions look favourable for moth trapping again tonight (Friday) - give it a go!
