Some late records.....

At an interesting lecture to the Llanelli Naturalists earlier this week, Veronica Haines spoke about the wildlife in her garden at Pwll, Llanelli, and included various photographs of moths and other insects. Subsequently, Veronica kindly sent me a few photos with details of sites and dates, and I`ll shortly pass on these records (in her name) to Sam, our County Moth Recorder. I give a very small selection of Veronica`s photos below:

                                               Above: scarlet tiger, garden, Pwll, 13.7.15
                                          Above: female ghost moth, garden, Pwll, 4.7.15.
                             Above: lackey caterpillars and nest, Pembrey Burrows 17.6.15.
                                 Above: bordered straw, Waun las, NBGW, Llanarthne, 6.6.15.
  Above: Found on hogweed, I think that this is a parsnip moth caterpillar Depressaria radiella,

Some good records, Veronica - keep up the good work in 2016!
