Cwmpalis last week

My parents spent most of last week in a cottage at Cwmpalis (SN2919) - a lovely sheltered spot with  mature broadleaved woodland nearby, between St Clears and Meidrim. My dad ran two 6W traps each night and ended up with a decent list (given the generally cool and/or windy conditions) of 15 species. I joined them for the weekend and got to see a few of these before the wintery weather returned with a bang! This nice little montage was put together by my dad for the owner, who lives next door and is interested in wildlife.

The highlights among these are probably Pale Pinion and a very attractively-marked Acleris cristana.

I'm not sure how well recorded the hectad SN21 is, but hopefully at least something among these will be new for the square.

  1. Really well done to the two Mr Tordoffs and the montage is good too!
    I remember going to Cwm Palis back in the late 1980s, when I had to deal with a woodland grant scheme in my Nature Conservancy Council days. I agree, a nice locality. I need to start trapping...
