Saturday 06/10/2012

Given that we had heavy rain for the first part of the night, followed by clear skies and a minimum of 2.80 C, it wasn't surprising to find only five moths in the GMS catch for the 5th, these being Autumn Green Carpet (1), Common Marbled Carpet (2), Grey Shoulder-Knot (1) and Lunar Underwing (1).
Later in the day, while wandering around a former factory site in Robertstown, Aberdare, I saw five Small Tortoiseshells, Red Admiral and at least five Silver Y. According to Atropos Flight Arrivals, it seems that there has been a small influx of migrants.
At the same site, I also saw a Common Darter and and a Southern Hawker.
