Migrant in Gowerton

At last, after several days of warm southerlies, a proper migrant, and one I have not seen before either. Uresiphita gilvata comes from southern Mediterranean and tropics Also Udea ferrugalis plus, over the last few days, Caloptilia azaleelle, Ypsolopha ustella, Carcina quercana, Clepsis consimilana and a lovely Merveille du Jour which I only seem to see about once a year.

  1. What a cracker - well done, Chris! (I`m big-time jealous!). I was hoping for some juicy migrants here at Pwll last night, but just three common migrants- they must have stopped off at Gowerton!

  2. Very nice third county record, well done braving the elements.
