Creigiau last night

Another quiet night in the moth trap. 15 moths of 10 species, including 4 Snout. Undoubted highlight was my second ever Merveille du Jour - the first was in the garden last November - a lovely thing to see anytime, but especially on a grey, damp morning devoid of colour.


  1. Would love one of those in my trap one morning. Such a cracking looking moth. Nice pic too.

  2. Thanks both. When I released it into the flower bed after dark on Wednesday evening it obligingly loitered around and I managed to grab a couple of shots before it left. I'll post the pics later.
