Picking up in Llandaff North

My garden catches have been pretty good of late, but not exceptional given the fine weather. But last night things really took off with 36 species caught, and many of them in good numbers - 24 Common Marbled Carpet is my highest garden count by some margin.

There was nothing exceptional among the macros, though it was nice to catch my second Lime Hawk of the year as well as my first Cypress Carpet of 2018. The highlight among the micros was Elachista argentella new for the garden, and also my first Plutella porrectella since 2009.
