Tawny Shears in Burry Port
I had another small but varied trap with several firsts for the year including Treble Lines, White Pinion Spotted, Yellow Belle and Flame Shoulder.
I also spent some time puzzling over this noctuid:
At last the black arrows on the outer cross line, the dart, the clarity of the markings and the pattern on the head, persuaded me this is Tawny Shears - a lifer for me. I am happy to be put right if I've made an error. I hoped to present pictures of some of my FFYs, but only the Flame Shoulder obliged.
