Actinic debut in Bridgend

We gave our new little Actinic 8W / Heath combination a try in the garden last night. We'd only used it with a battery in our caravan on the Gower before.

Unsurprisingly a small catch 12 species / 30 individuals, the highlight was our first Copper Underwing of the year. Rusty Dot Pearl and Knot Grass were also nice to get, but most of the catch was Brimstone moth!

We've equalled last year's species total for the garden already at 170 species (128 macro).
