Seasonal Arrivals at Maenol
Last night was the first of what is forecast to be a succession of cool, clear nights, not good for trapping, but two actinic traps were put out here 'just in case'. A meagre 18 moths of 10 species were recorded, but not without interest insofar as they included two FFYs, Brown-spot Pinion and Brindled Green:
The others were Brimstone, 5 Pink-barred Sallow, Sallow, 2 Rosy Rustic, Green Carpet, 2 Common Marbled carpet, 2 Silver Y, and the tortricid Acleris rhombana:
There aren't many micros in evidence here, although I have seen several Agonopterix heracliana on the wall below the porch light and Nettle-tap Moths are still flying in the garden when the sun is shining.
