I left my two 6W Heath traps overnight at Craig Cerrig NNR on 16th July, and was joined by Mark Evans (and about a million midges) for trap emptying the next morning.
A large catch of around 350 moths of 53 species was recorded, but there was only one moth of real note - this Beech-green Carpet which Norman Lowe has confirmed is the first record for VC42.
There are only two modern Glamorgan records - from Horton in 1995 (Brock) and Coed-y-wenallt in 1997 (Gilmore & Powell). GMRG held a trapping session at the latter site in July 2010 to try and refind it, but without success. Maybe we should try again?
