Managed to get my annual trip from Buckinghamshire to Port Eynon in at last, and naturally enough trapped in my mum's garden.
I had a few new for my year list, although not as many of the coastal species I usually manage to catch, albeit 5-6 weeks earlier in the year.
Of interest, though, I did catch Mecyna asinalis, Dolicharthria punctalis, and three examples of what I take to be Cosmopterix pulchrimella, which I see from the Glamorgan Moths website has occurred in Port Eynon on a handful of previous occasions.

Highlight once again thus far was a Toadflax Brocade, sadly the Great Tit's beat me to it. I saw one wing on top of trap and rest inside. I've still not found any larvae in the garden amongst the Purple Toadflax, nor on the copious amounts of it in the lane, especially as the larvae is quite conspicuous.
