A bit disappointing....

A bit disappointing last night (25/5) with two traps out in the garden at Pwll, another two left at the edge of mixed conifer woodland on the Stradey Estate and a further actinic on a nearby rank `rhos` site. The hoped-for conifer micros did n`t materialize and I suspect that it was a bit too cold for them.
The remaining traps had a fair mix of seasonal moths but nothing really exciting, though I have retained a couple of micros.

                                   Above: a dog`s tooth, caught in one of my garden traps.

                                          Above: rustic shoulder-knot, also from my garden.


  1. Good moths and nice pics, Ian. Despite the likelihood of early morning rain tomorrow, I shall be trapping tonight.

  2. I haven't seen a Dog's Tooth for many years...
