Roath (central)

Last night: Dark Sword-grass & Silver Y (3), along with a Straw U/w (3rd garden rec & first since Aug. 2001). At Whitchurch on 1st had a Lilac Beauty, first for that site. Good numbers of ermine moths, mostly Bird-cherry & Willow (rorrella). E. postvittana numbers raising, 7 last night.
My garden total now stands at 497, three more and I'm going to crack the Champagne! Any GMRG badges for the 500 club Dave?

  1. Well done on the Straw Underwing Jake - I'm still waiting for one to turn up in my trap. I've got a long way to go to get to 500, having only just passed 400 (including butterflies and a few agg species). I'm currently adding about 50 new species a year, so it should only take another 2 years, but the 'law of diminishing returns' is bound to kick in at some point!
