Quiet Time at Maenol

The usual MV/Actinic combo was out last night but there was very little activity.   I checked the traps at 10.15pm and closed them down at 5.15am, and didn't see a single moth on either occasion.  Later this morning it was a pleasant surprise to find a dozen moths in each trap, nine species recorded, nothing too exciting although it was nice to see a Pale Pinion:


This species is not a regular visitor here, only the seventh record in ten years of trapping.  The Tawny Pinion caught on 7 April was the seventh record of that species, too.
