Bridgend overnight 02Sep14

Last night, we celebrated the 300th trapping in the garden since we began back in 2004. The highlight was a life moth for us in the form of a lovely Cypress Pug.

Conditions much warmer last night and we enjoyed over 100 individuals of 26 species. Although dominated by Light Brown Apple moths, Large Yellow Underwing and Brimstone, the session was enlivened by new for the year in the form of Spruce Carpet, Square-spot Rustic and a nice Pale Mottled Willow (first since 2008).

Other highlights: Emmelina monodactyla, Dusky Thorn, Light Emerald, Gothic, Copper Underwing, Angle Shades, Silver Y and Straw Dot.
