Prior's Meadow, Gower. 25th May

Quite windy but after a very warm day, 27 degrees here, it seemed it would be warm overnight so....
Still windy at dawn but around 80 species, mostly pretty flighty. Best for me was a distinctive Lead-coloured Pug which I've only seen once before, and not in Wales, but it got disturbed in the wind by a blundering Pale Tussock as I went to pot it, so no pic. I'll have to try for another.
Also good news was this Lobesia reliquana which I see is only the second VC 41 record, and new to me. The Ectoedemia albifasciella was only 3mm long so I nearly missed it, plus a couple more nice to see.
 04.089 Ectoedemia albifasciella

38.025 Elachista atricomella
