Catch-up blog No 4: the last night of trapping...

For the night of Wednesday 21/6, I had decided that it was going to be an easy `home trap` and out went the MV and a mains actinic. The night was cooler than previous nights but a respectable 60+ species were achieved, mostly the `Pwll regulars`.
There were 6 eyed hawk-moths (my highest number), a poplar grey, a dusky brocade and a clouded brindle, the latter being a relatively infrequently caught moth in Carmarthenshire. The similarly-named clouded-bordered brindle is quite frequent.


The cooler and much windier nights now mean a short break from trapping...
