Port Eynon Garden

My annual week of moth trapping in Port Eynon (away from my usual haunts in Buckinghamshire) has begun.
In spite of the rain at collection time and the attentions of a mother Robin, I managed 40 species with the Heart & Darts outnumbering the other 39 species combined.

New for my year list were Riband Wave, Fan Foot, Broad-barred White, Tinea semifulvella, Uncertain, Tachystola acroxantha, Bright-line Brown-eye, Spectacle, Green Pug and Mottled Beauty; most of which I fully expect to get back in VC24 over the summer!

On top of those I had this huge (26mm w/s) pug if anyone has any ideas...

...and I'm thinking this slightly tatty chap is L-Album Wainscot, which I absolutely will not get at home!

  1. Given the size I think it must be a worn Freyer's.

    And yes looks good for L-album.

  2. I think the Pug looks good for Freyer's Dave, one we get often here in Bridgend :)
