Great Prominent - Carmarthenshire North

Started off cloudy, turning clear, fresh and breezy, with temps falling from 12 degrees daytime, down to 9 degrees evening. This brought in 15 moths of 10 species including this rather fine and handsome Great Prominent. nfy, nfg, nfy.

  1. Nice record. It`s a species that we seemingly don`t get here in extreme SE Carms, and a moth that I`ve never seen.

  2. Really! The photo doesn't do it justice for its size! It was a beauty. Very glad we've got one for the Carmathenshire record.
