27 species in Burry Port
A warm cloudy night produced a decent crop of moths in my suburban back garden.
I was pleased to see a dark "insularia" Peppered Moth, the light form being regular here, but I have never seen a dark morph before.
I also believe this is a Grass Rivulet, looking a bit like a miniature Small Seraphim.
A Vine's Rustic was a first for the year
Last year I had a few Tachystola Acroxantha and I've had quite a few this year, including three last night.
These little moths are not well behaved and I'm getting used to the Macro lens on a heavier body, hence the variable picture quality.
