Went to Glaslyn nature reserve on Thursday night to look for Ashworth's Rustic. 9 came to my traps, plus other moorland species such as Northern Spinach, Grey Mountain Carpet, Clouded Buff, Pleurota bicostella
and Phiaris schulziana
Last night in Gowerton produced a nice migrant Palpita vitrealis
and the tiny but striking Ectoedemia decentella
(if my ID is correct) which looks like only the second VC41 record.
Well, you've been a busy boy! Stunning photos as always ChrisReplyDelete
A lovely moth Ashworth's, and that one is in good nick too.ReplyDelete
Thanks both. Forgot to say that Glaslyn is in Montgomeryshire in the Cambrian mountains. 540 acres of moorland with lake, and scree for the Ashworth's.ReplyDelete
Phew!....I thought for a second or two that Glamorgan had Ashworths rustic too! Messrs Stewart and Tordoff would have really `rubbed it in`, if that was so....I would n`t be able to sleep!ReplyDelete
Great pics Chris!
