Broughton, Gower last night

A cool night and little in our 8W Actinic trap the highlight being a nice Grass Eggar.

1 Purple Bar, 5 White-line Dart, 1 Drinker, 1 Grass Eggar, 1 July Highflyer, 1 Scalloped Oak, 1 Large YU, 1 silver Y and a dead Nicrophorus investigator (beetle).

Yesterday I saw a day flying Oak Eggar above Twlc point nearby. There have also been a few butterflies around but in small numbers including Wall, Grayling, Red Admiral, Painted Lady and Gatekeeper. The last few days have also seen Emperor moth caterpillar.
