Diversity in Burry Port
I only caught a grand Total of 18 moths last night - including those hanging round the trap. However this encompassed 13 species, including a number of firsts for the year.
Waved Umber was one of the first moths I caught in my garden and it's a favourite of mine. I also had an impressive Puss Moth.
And Red Twin Spot Carpet
Finally there were two Tachystola acroxantha in the trap and I include this poor photo of one making its escape. Why is my garden so good for this species?
