Gowerton 14th Aug

This distinctive Acrolepiopsis assectella, Leek Moth, was one of two in the trap this morning. New to me and, according to MapMate, not recorded much west of Cardiff previously. I also had one 3 days ago but it escaped before I could identify or pot it, so probably breeding on the spring onions in the garden.
Also first for year were August Thorn and Marbled Beauty.
