Who needs a moth trap?

After the exertions of the previous late night/early morning in the hills at Rhandirmwyn, last night (15/8) was to be an early night, with just the garden trap set up. After meeting some friends at a pub in a very urban location, I was surprised to see this male orange swift sitting on my car. It`s a moth that I associate (through my few records of it) with `rhos` habitat.

I`ll post the results of my home trap later...


  1. It's definitely an urban moth in Cardiff. Pretty common in my garden trap.

  2. Interesting. I`ve noticed the flurry of recent records on the Glam moth blog.
