Nephopterix angustella in Mumbles

Received this blurry but unmistakable photo from Owain Gabb amongst a batch of photos for id/confirmation this morning. Only the 2nd VC record of this Spindle feeder, the first being at Aberthaw on 20 Sep 2003, found by Mike Powell. Owain's been trapping regularly in Mumbles this year and has had a good number of noteworthy species.
