Gorseinon, with yet another late record

A reasonable night with 17 species of lep recorded: Still good numbers of Light Brown Apple Moth 18 (possibly my best year ever?), Acleris sparsana 1 (4th garden record), Palpita vitrealis 1 (7th g.r.), Meal Moth 1 (another one to join the list of latest ever county records), Pine Carpet 1 (5th g.r.), Dark Chestnut (3rd g.r.) 1 & Silver Y 2 (334th g.r.)...
...also Eudonia angustea and Merveille du Jour found outside the trap as I was tidying up before the rain arrives, so 19 spp. in total.
