We ran another moth/bat walk at St Augustine's Church in Penarth last friday night and attracted in a few nice species though i was overrun with marbled minor aggs in the two hours the trap was running...
Dun-bar was new for the year for me with the crowd-pleasers being rosy foortman, swallow-tailed moth and marbled green. It was also nice to have 4 different varieties of yellow underwing to show people; large, lesser, lesser broad-bordered and least.
It's difficult to do micros easily when surrounded by people (especially very enthusiastic children) so i only recorded a couple (Anania coronata, Light brown apple moth) but my colleague grabbed some phone pictures of two others if anyone would like to attempt an id i'd be grateful!
