Nothing exceptional to write home about on what was an exceptionally mild November night. A darkish example of Pseudaryrotoza conwagana is a week later than the previous latest Glamorgan record and a Dark Arches just missed the latest record for that species by one day, Veronica Shenston having recorded one at Cwm Ivy on the 16th Nov 2001. Migrants limited to just a few Silver Ys and a Diamond Back Moth. A Cypress Carpet two days ago was just the 5th garden record of what has been an annual visitor since 2015.

Postscript: Just found this on the bottom of the trap when tapping out (8th garden record)...

  1. I had the box out in our garden in Creigiau on Thursday night and saw my first ever Palpita vitrealis. Also recorded Dark Arches, Setaceous Hebrew Character and a very nice Blastobasis lacticolella.
