Bridgend night of 24Jun16

Ancylis achatana was the highlight of a MV trapping consisting of 45 moths (24 species) - the 401st species for the garden (133rd micro). This pretty little moth species is spreading northwards and was no surprise to us as we have plenty of the suitable foodplants in the garden.Others new for the year were Gypsonoma dealbana, Lime-speck Pug, The Phoenix, Eyed Hawkmoth, Double Square-spot and Fan-foot. We also had a Green Shield Bug.
