Moth Nights 2 and 3

I left two portable traps at Lanlay Meadows (Peterston-super-Ely) on Saturday night. The results on Sunday morning were very good with a range of autumnal species present, including 6 Merveille du Jour. The highlight, though, was a Vestal.

Back home, the garden trap has been quite productive too, with several species new for the year and Crocidosema plebejana new for the site on Friday night. There were a few Cardiff records of this tortricid in the excellent migrant year 2006, but there haven't been any in the capital since then.
