49 species in Bridgend overnight

Our MV Trap was busy again last night, 136 individuals of 49 species.

The highlight was our first Agriphila geniculea and Fern taking the garden list to 362 species (260 macro).

Other species new for the year were Cydia splendana, Agriphila straminella (last caught in 2012), Common Pug, August Thorn, Pebble Prominent (2011), and Small Wainscot (2008). Otherwise we recorded lots of Eudonia lacustrata, Brimstone, Swallow-tailed moth, Marbled Beauty and Dark Arches.
