Panic stations

I had to leave Cnwc by 07:30 on Friday to get back to Dingestow to say goodbye to our holiday guests, but that doesn’t prevent some mothing if I wake before 6. I overslept, and had half an hour to process a bumper trap-full with help from Bea & Johnny. Goodness knows what we missed, but the 110 species identified included Shark, Cream Wave and Ancylis geminana new for Cnwc, plus Campion, a stunningly marked Iron Prominent, Digitivalva pulicariae, and estimated minima of 15 Fox Moth, 30 Foxglove Pug, 12 Broken-barred Carpet, 18 Buff-tip, 7 Brown Rustic etc. It should have been a gentle 1.5 hour session, enjoying the bounty, but ended up as a bit of a panic!
