Llandaff North last night
Conditions last night were near perfect and the garden trap was fairly well stuffed with moths this morning. The number of species (47) was much lower than in the June heatwave but pretty good for late August. Notable high counts included 53 Large Yellow Underwing, 16 Willow Beauty and a ridiculous 60 Argyresthia goedartella. There was only one species of real note: Epermenia falciformis new for the garden. It was also nice to catch my first Old Lady of the season, as well as a Cypress Pug and a couple of Turnip Moths.
