Cwmbach Winter GMS: Week 1

It rained for most of the night and then became cool and foggy, so I wasn't surprised to get only four moths of three species, one of which- Red-green Carpet- doesn't for some reason count for the WGMS.

Red-green Carpet x 1
Turnip Moth x 1 (Same individual as I had yesterday)
Angle Shades x 2

It's so easy to take the common species for granted and certainly in the summer, I rarely get the chance to really LOOK at the moths, so it was nice, today to have the time to really appreciate just what a stunning moth the Angle Shades is!
