Bridgend last night
Just 50 moths of 12 species last night. The catch was dominated by Large and Lesser Yellow Underwing and Square-spot Rustic, the highlight was our first Dusky Thorn of the Year (176th). We also caught a caddisfly which we think is Stenophylax permistus. Later on I found a new species of moth for the garden in Apple Leaf Skeletoniser (419th), considering we live right next to an apple tree not surprising, but it is weird that we haven't had one in the last 14 years living here!
