Bute Park event

Yesterday's Bute Park moth morning was very successful with plenty of interested adults and kids turning up to see the moths caught overnight. I left two MVs and a 6W actinic in the nursery compound on what was a clear and fairly cool night. Moth highlights included Olive and three Swallow Promiment, probably from the mature poplars on the nearby riverbank. The most surprising moth was a Crescent which perhaps wandered up-river from the Cardiff Bay wetlands. There were a few migrants in the form of Silver Y and three Dark Sword-grass, and also the sexton beetle Necrodes littoralis.
