Merthyr mawr warren last night, PP+GMT.

                                    Least black arches
                                   Pine beauty
                                 Ypsolopha mucronella (4th county record).
                                 25 species in all with 8 new for the site, on a warm night,
                                  (10 degrees).Luckily we only had the odd spot of rain,
                                 which kept off until midnight, when we packed up.

  1. This was with two MVs and two 6W actinics (the latter placed a little way out onto the dunes). As often happens the actinics caught less moths than the MVs but produced the best records (Tissue and mucronella).
