Cwmbach GMS

Dry, partially cloudy and a minimum temperature of 11.80 C, so a good night for moths, which was reflected in the catch of 45 species; by far the best catch so far this year.
There were a few firsts for this year, for the garden (and elsewhere for that matter), including in no particular order:

Ruby Tiger
Marbled Beauty
Small Rivulet
Lesser Yellow Underwing
Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing
Numonia advenella
Zelleria hepariella (dark form)

I had to run my GMS trap last night, rather than tonight as I'm off to Shropshire for the weekend. Sorry I couldn't join you at Parc Slip, George: You should have a cracking night.
