24 species in the garden trap this morning, the highlight being 2 Seraphims. This is only the second time I've recorded it here, the first being on 18 May 1997 when again there were 2 individuals. There a few Aspen clumps scattered around Gorseinon, so I guess we only see this species when the wind blows in the right direction at the just the right time - not sure how else you explain multiple captures 15 years apart? New species for the year were Willow Beauty, Yellow-barred Brindle, Sloe Pug, Coxcomb Prominent, Cream Wave, Light Emerald, Rustic Shoulder-knot and Vine's Rustic.
