The other highlight was a Dotted Chestnut - I've caught them a couple of times but it was great to get one in my garden.

My first post of the year is of old news. Last July Anne Mansfield, a visiting moth'er from Norfolk stayed on Gower for a few days and caught this rather lovely moth. She thought at first it was Ni, but in then end settled for Beautiful Golden Y and posted it on her blog. Fortunately someone suggested that she get another opinion so she sent the photo to me.
Whilst Scarce Silver Y is an upland species, found in the northern parts of Glamorgan and then up through Wales, it is also known to be an occasional immigrant.
