National Moth Night 2021

 National Moth Night 2021 is coming up....it`s the weekend of Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th July and details can be seen at: https://www.mothnight.info/

Unfortunately, I won`t be in Carmarthenshire that weekend, but good luck to all who participate. Not much moth news as far as my records are concerned (last night`s trap was quite boring!) though I was very pleased to accidentally find the leaf mines of Mompha langiella in Stradey Woods, Llanelli. It`s a leaf mine that I had been deliberately looking for over recent years, but with no luck. It was found on the host plant (enchanter`s nightshade Circaea lutetiana), with one plant holding many mines but adjacent plants none.
