NMN in Bridgend

We ran our MV trap and caught 154 moths of 33 species. Much the same catch as the previous nights, dominated by Diamond-backed moths (55) and Heart & Dart (28). Of the rest, new for the year were Celypha lacunana and Small Seraphim (both first since 2008), Bee moth, Foxglove Pug, Cabbage moth and Small Fan-foot taking our year tally to 93 species which is really good for us at this stage of the year. Also trapped were 3 Elephant Hawkmoth.
