Rhoose Point

45 species in good trapping conditions last night. 3 Silver Y and a couple of Diamond-back moths representing the migrants.  For macros there were: 30 Heart and Darts, 5 Pale Tussock, and firsts for the year from Bee Moth and Willow Beauty.  Also nice to see a few that are common elsewhere but don't turn up here very often - Ingrailed Clay, Dusky Brocade and Cloud-bordered Brindle.

A good number of micros too, 12 in total including Argyresthia cupressella, Cochylis molliculana and the first Grass moth for the year which as usual was Chrysoteuchia culmella.
