Numbers still climbing in Burry Port
My largest trap of the year, 101 moths of 53 species continued to produce firsts for the year without anything spectacular. Top scorer was White-Line Dart with 13 individuals.
My first engrailed of the year was nicely marked.
I keep finding this small Tortrix in the trap - it seems to be clearly Endothenia, but appears to small to be gentianaeana. I keep thinking it looks like oblongana.
My first Acrobasis advenella turned up at this time last year - now another arrives.
