Although only 46 species were trapped in the garden at Cwmllwyd in a total count of 128 moths last night (Monday 25th June), I was happy with the catch, for there were pristine specimens of many species and with 12 FFY. Highlights among these included Large Emerald, Dark Arches, Brown China-mark, Six-striped Rustic, Pinion-streaked Snout and Northern Spinach. Pick of the crop was, undoubtedly, Gold Spangle - a species new to me.
Beautiful markings and colour on this Poplar Hawk
