Alun Valley (26th May)


First outing with the generator in a long time resulted in a great catch of 54 species in two and a half hours, on a sultry night. An excellent range of geometrids but hardly any noctuids. Highlights were Little Thorn (3, new SS97), Little Emerald (3), Scorched Carpet, Square-spot, Orange Footman, Lead Belle and Barred Umber.

Also lots of micros new for SS97, an under-recorded square: Micropterix tunbergella, Capua vulgana, Syndemis musculana, Blastobasis lacticolella and Monopis weaverella.
