Chocolate-tip last night in Bridgend
A warmer night last night saw about 120 moths of 38 species. Highlight was Chocolate-tip, a new moth for us (300th Glamorgan macro) (386th moth for garden). A bumper crop of micros has boosted us to our best ever year already (53 species). New for the year last night were Ypsolopha scabrela, Mompha propinquella, Acleris forsskaleana, Garden Pebble, Pyrausta aurata, Phycitodes sp and unidentified sp (see below), August Thorn, Lesser Yellow Underwing, Least Yellow Underwing and Square-spot Rustic. Year list now 161.
