Llandaff North last night

I'm always complaining that my garden is a bit rubbish for moths, but I may have to stop this negative talk after recent bumper catches. Last night continued the recent run of excellent results, with 87 species in the Robinson MV.

I've waited 10 years for a Small Ranunculus here, and then two turn up on the same night!

Other highlights were Sycamore (photo), Haworth's Pug (2) and Anania stachydalis (alongside 20+ of its commoner relative Anania coronata).

Much less welcome was an early Square-spot Rustic - usually a sign that summer is ending and the best of the mothing is behind us. Let's hope that's not the case this year!

  1. George, I bet that's the same Sycamore from my Llandaff Garden.
