One More Time.

One More Time was a record released by Daft Punk in November 2000. The duo must have had an affinity with late season moth trappers, for last night was very much the last time for 2018 at Cwmllwyd. 18 moths of 5 species visited the MV trap in the alder grove (although 3 of the 6 Winter Moths were on nearby alder trunks). There were 8 December Moths, 2 Mottled Umber, the eleventh Red Sword-grass of 2018 (!) and a Dark Chestnut, shown below:


Wishing all Carms Moth Group members a very merry Christmas and hoping we all have a bumper haul of moths and butterflies in 2019.

  1. Well done, Steve, that's a reasonable 'catch' for the time of year. My porch light had attracted one Winter Moth by 10pm last night so I didn't bother with a trap. Just as well, it rained here. Compliments of the season to you, too!
    P.S I Have the Daft Punk number on my music system. It's Teresa May's signature tune!

  2. Yesterday morning I had 25+ WinterMoths, 16 Mottled Umber, 1 December Moth and a perfect Red-green Carpet, in the actinic.
    Happy Christmas to you all, I hope your stockings are full of Atropos books and Watkins and Doncaster kit!
