Our Bridgend garden last night (MV)

Well we saw June out with a bang on a lovely hot night with 196 moths of 51 species.

New for the year were Lackey and Cream Wave (last recorded 2010), Agapeta hamana and Grey tortrix sp (2012) and Currant Pug (2013). Others new for the year were Apple Leaf Miner, Lozotaenia forsterana, Acleries laterana (agg), Codling moth, Common Carpet, Scalloped Oak, Swallow-tailed moth, Dot moth, Smoky Wainscot, Light Arches, Middle-barred Minor, Cloaked Minor, Common Rustic (agg), The Spectacle and Fan-foot. We also had a lovely Brindled Plume pictured here along with what looks like a Grey Tortrix sp. Mike & Emma.


  1. Thanks Barry, we had so many moths that night, what with kids wanting to play, I dismissed this one too easily as I had spent so much time in the past second guessing the Grey Tortrix group! Hawthorn moth is new for us!
