Our Bridgend garden last night (MV).

A cool night, only 42 moths of 21 species, the highlight being four new micro species to add to our year list: Bryotropha terrella, Carcina quercana, Agriphila selasella and Agriphila tristella. The Bryotropha was new for the patch taking us to 385 species (264macro/121micro).

Other moths of interest were Barred Fruit-tree Tortrix and several LBBY Underwing.

As we put the trap out again tonight, it is a little warmer and just to prove it 2 Common Pipistrelle bats arrived to feed over the garden 2110 until 2130.
