I left two 6W actinics at Coed-y-bedw last night, my first mobile trapping of the year. Although it fell to 4C by dawn, it was still 10C at dusk and a reasonable catch of 14 species resulted. This included the micros Acleris cristana
and A. notana/ferrugana
(tbc), both new for the site, plus Semioscopis avellanella
(a local species last recorded here in 1997).
Macros included Mottled Grey, Oak Beauty, Satellite, Twin-spotted Quaker and Yellow-horned.
