Allt y Rhiw Woods, Blackmill

As part of the Biodiversity Blitz organised by SEWBReC yesterday traps were run in this upland oakwood, with abundant bilberry on the floor.
A couple of bilberry specialists appeared, with the highlight undoubtedly this female Beautiful Snout in Dave's trap. Also, among others, good numbers of Little Thorn, singles of Map-winged Swift and Green Silver-lines, a couple of Lobster and clouds of Common Marbled Carpet in every conceivable colour form.
