Bancyffordd 7/4/19 - some numbers at last.
So far this year my trap hasn't been attracting much. Last night I had 20 species among 231 moths, quite a turn around. Nothing of any rarity value but 11 Brindled Beauty were the first I have seen this year, and 2 Streamer showed how stylish nature can be. In contrast a single late Early Moth was on the wall of the trap and I notice from the recording sheet that this is an "A" category - made me wonder if this species has undergone a decline in this area or if it has never been very frequent to have achieved this status?
