Pembrey Burrows LNR first session Monday 23rd May 2017
In less than perfect weather conditions, a bit blowy and cool I set the Skinner 15w in area of Willow scrub/Phragmites reed and rough grass. (SS413997) I only ran the trap from sunset until 23:00hrs, as I was out at 05:30hrs bird ringing..
I am quite pleased with my first attempt and picked up a nice range of moths but not in any quantity.
Please correct any identification errors as I'm quite rusty...
Middle Barred Minor
Sharp Angled Peacock
If anyone would like to join me at the reserve I'm planning another session for Wednesday just for a few hours after sunset.
