A mild night in Burry Port
I had twenty odd species with double figures of Common Swift and Treble Lines last night.
I believe I have a Pale-shouldered Brocade here, does anyone concur?
I also believe this to be a Sandy Carpet which is another first for me.
I am puzzled by this wave. It looks a bit like a Cream Wave but there are no black markings on the trailing edges and it does not appear as if they have worn away. I wondered about Common Wave, but the hindwings are slightly pointed and have obvious black dots and the forewings don't seem to me to be the right shape either. Any ideas?
