Lower Ochrwyth - 25 July

A bit late in posting, but Wednesday night produced the highest catch of the year so far and I only ran the trap until 1.30am!  There were 226 moths of 68 species.  NFY were: Sallow Kitten, Hypsopygia glaucinalis, Slender Brindle, Yellow Shell, Wormwood Pug, Argyresthia brockeela, Shaded Broad-bar, Scarce Footman, Dun-Bar, Apotomis betuletana, Codling Moth and Aethes rubigana (not shown on distribution map for Gwent in the new Micro book, but SB recorded it first back in 2000).
