I also ran my 125 watt Skinner trap in Cwm Taf Fechan last night, fro 21:45 until 02:45. Although overcast skies to start with, promised a good evening, the skies quickly cleared and the temperatures dropped to a minimum of 7.90C. Even so, the catch was a respectable 43 species. Highlights were a female Fox Moth, Green Silver-lines and five species of prominent.
|Pale Tussock. Common, but such a lovely beast.|
Three macros were added to the 10km square (SO01), these being Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpet, Mottled Pug and Pale-shouldered Brocade.
As an extra treat, I also saw an adult and two newly fledged Tawny Owls in the trees above the trap.
