Cwmbach 26/06/2013

I ran the garden actinic trap last night and had 18 species, the highlights being: Map-winged Swift, Small Magpie, Heart and Club, Iron Prominent and the Knot-grass. Unfortunately, on opening the trap, I found lots of web and a large house spider, which had killed three of the moths in there. It must have blundered in there since last Friday, while the trap was stored in my shed. It put up a good fight, but with the aid of a whip and chair, I managed to evict it from its chosen egg box.

While gardening in the VC41 part of Hirwaun, today, I disturbed this Burnished Brass from the herbage.
