Our garden last night in Bridgend

A warm night produced 152 moths of 33 species. The highlights for us were a lifer, our first ever Orange Footman (398th species for garden) and a  nice Alder moth (suffusa). We had 61 Diamond-backed moths - they seem to be everywhere right now. New for the year were Grey Tortrix (first since 2006), Notocelia cynosbatella (first since 2008), Codling moth, Grass Veneer, Eudonia lacustrata, Small Magpie, Figure of Eighty, Freyer's Pug, Green Pug, Yellow-barred Brindle, Willow Beauty, Mottled Beauty, Clouded Silver, 2 Elephant Hawkmoths, White Ermine and the ubiquitous Large Yellow Underwing. We also attracted a lovely species of Picture-winged Fly (Herina frondescentiae).
