Finally picking up in Llandaff

A very warm evening, although the wind did pick up in the early hours and was quite blustery.

It was the best night of the year so far. I counted 127 Plutella xylostella, but countless more were pouring out of the trap as I removed the egg cartons.

Nothing really notable, 26 species and a couple new for the year being,  Scorched Wing and Pale Tussock. Also 3 more Rhyacionia pinivorana.

A rather large Mayfly - looks as if it was Ephemera danica and a Nicrophorus humator, with a bucket load of mites.

I'm surprised by the lack of Pugs so far this year.

Looking forward to more migrants.
