Bridgend overnight 23Jun15 (MV)

We caught 99 moths of 32 species. The highlight for us was The Alder, a nice fresh one and our first since 2006. Though the trap was dominated by Chysoteuchia culmella and Heart & Darts.

A few nice micros were trapped including Notocelia rosaecolona and Anania coronata. Others new for the year were Rush Veneer (2012), White Ermine, The Cinnabar (2009), The flame, Double Square-spot, The Rustic, Mottled rustic and Small Fan-foot.

This takes our year tally to 86 species (64 macro/22 micro).
