Maesteg last night

                   I lent my skinner trap to Tony Handley last night. He has
                   a nice piece of overgrown wasteland next to his garden and
                   on inspection this morning 54 species were left in the trap.
                   Elephant and Poplar hawkmoths and 3 Garden tigers amongst
                   others have piqued his interest enough to order a trap of his
                   own to start mothing. As is usually the case, his first session
                   produced a goodie,  this Pine shoot moth, a lifer for me and
                   the 890th species to be recorded in the Llynfi valley.
