Creigiau - Tuesday night

A warm night, with the minimum temperature staying at just about 20C. 130 moths of 48 species with at least 3 being new moths for the garden and me. New for the year were: Agapeta hamana ( abit wishy-washy but I think I'm right), Bird-cherry Ermine, Bud Moth, Clay Triple-lines (new for me), Zeiraphera isertana (new for me), Leopard Moth, Pyrausta purpuralis, Small Rufous (new for me if correct), Small yellow Wave (new for me), Pseudogyrotoza conwagana & Ruby Tiger.

Some of the colourful moths are shown below

I also have some other micros that I am struggling with, but I'll post them separately.
