Productive Night at Maenol

It was a mild, overcast night following a warm day, so the large influx of moths to my two traps, MV and actinic, was no surprise.  The highlight was a Tawny Pinion, which I haven't seen since 2015.  FFYs were Red Twin-spot Carpet, Streamer, Double-striped Pug, Lunar Marbled Brown, and an early Sallow Kitten.  The 27 species recorded included another White-marked and four micros which will be the subjects of another report when (or if) I manage to identify them.
