Wot, no pix?

Cwmllwyd,  15 November 2017. The MV trap in the alder grove attracted 26 moths of 7 species during what may be the final "warm" opportunity for trapping of 2017. All the species have been seen by everyone this year, so photographs are superfluous. Most populous were December Moth x 12, followed by Feathered Thorn x 5. Others were Red-line and Yellow-line Quakers, November Moth and Chestnut. Moth of the night, though, was a surprisingly fresh looking Silver Y. I don't recall ever seeing one as late in the year as this before.

  1. I agree with you on this. I didn't even see one before late. Anyways, I guess everything goes as planned and nothing messes up. Lets see.
