Our Bridgend Garden last night

As we opened the trap Raven and Redpoll flew overhead and Mike had two Tree Pipits over Laleston on his morning run. This made up for the attempt on world domination by Yellow Underwing moths which for want of a better word, "crammed" our trap! Of the 105 moths caught, 66 were Large and 10 Lesser Yellow Underwings. The highlight though was a nice Bryotropha senectella (think I've got the yellow on scales and palps right for id. here) - new for us. Also good to see were Nut-tree Tussock and Vine's Rustic. We also rescued a rather nice Marmalade Hoverfly and a tiny whitish/grey moth like insect (2mm at best long).
