Maenol Update

 I've managed five trapping sessions so far this month but the catches have been disappointing, the usual seasonal moths have turned up: Marbled, Spruce and Pine Carpets, Sallows, Yellow- and Red-lined Quakers, Green Brindled Crescents, Merveille du Jours, Black Rustics etc.; several of the November Moth clan, the first on October 13th; an occasional Dark Swordgrass, Brown-spot Pinion and Lunar Underwing, a single Pale Mottled Willow (October 9th) and, this morning, just for a change, a Grey Shoulder-knot.

  1. Well done Chris - a fair variety of moths for the time of year.
