Creigiau - Friday night

My smallest catch for a while, with only 13 moths of 5 species in/around the trap. Much better earlier in the week when I logged 33 moths of 13 species including my first ever Lunar Marbled Brown.

My garden has changed dramatically in the last week - popped over to France for a visit to the Parc du Marquenterre on the Baie de Somme and when I got back the neighbours (next door and the house behind) have chopped down the huge stand of leylandii that bordered the gardens. Much more light for us but it has certainly impacted on the number of birds visiting the garden - have to wait and see if the numbers of moths will be affected.
