Llandaff North last night

With warm (and very wet) southerlies returning last night, I stuck the trap out more in hope than expectation. There was a migrant in the trap this morning, but just a Rusty-dot Pearl. It had a crippled forewing and I don't think it could have flown very far, so probably a locally bred specimen (I reared through a larva of this species found on Sea Beat at Barry Island last year, so they definitely breed locally). The only other moths in the trap were White-shouldered House-moth and Light Brown Apple Moth.

Also a RDP on a shop window in Swansea today.
