Llandaff - Garden - 26th June

A mild and overcast night with some drizzle.

A decent haul of moths with some interesting species, a couple new to garden once again and a migrant.

Highlights being, Leopard Moth, Green Arches, Burnished Brass(2), Coronet(5), Small Mottled Willow and a lovely Ptycholomoides aeriferana.

The Leopard Moth is the second garden record, Green Arches was the 5th I've had this year, so far. I've not had Burnished Brass for many years, so to see two together was very nice.
The migrant Small Mottled Willow, I'm sure is a new garden record, but the cracking Tortrix, Ptycholomoides aeriferana, was so nice to see.

Still a few id's to confirm in the micro department.

Will upload some photos tomorrow, was late home this evening, so moths are chilling another night.

Finally managed some time to upload a few others from the night.
