Augst 13th, Llandaff

A very humid and dry evening till around 11 when it started to pour down. Trap was run all night till 5am when I checked. Plenty of Brimstones - (27), but highlights were, Chocolate-Tip - new for year, Scarce Silver-lines - also new for the year, not had for a good few years in the garden, Rosy Footman, Scarce Footman, Old Lady (2), Ypsolopha parenthesella, ton's of Water Veneer's and another Evergestis pallidata. The Chocolate-Tip flew of  as soon as I had managed to take a photo with my phone.


  1. That's strange about the Water Veneers. I had 44 on night of 12th but none last night (despite being not too far from you). I guess they must make a mass emergence from different ponds on different nights.

  2. I don't even know where any ponds are near me to be honest. Although, there has to be something near by in the gardens of the avenue I live as I've had a fair few damsel and dragonflies of different types over the years.
