Cwm Colhuw bat/moth event

WTSWW had a bat walk/moth trap event at Cwm Colhuw on friday night - successful in terms of participants but rather quiet on the bat and moth front. Brisk cool wind may have dissuaded them - 17 macro species with the most interesting being waved umber, common swift, least black arches, rustic shoulder-knot and broken-barred carpet. Thankfully there were a couple of crowd-pleasers with lots of brimstones, a couple of green carpets and a pale tussock.


  1. Having entered these now into MapMate, four of these were new to SS96, and a few others tick the box of being the first for at least ten years. Good stuff!

  2. Excellent, thanks for the information Dave
