Lower Ochrwyth - 13 November

A milder evening so dusted off the MV, which subsequently produced a return of 13 moths of 5 species - Cypress Carpet, Red-green Carpet, x3 November Moth Agg., Common Marbled Carpet and x7 Spruce Carpet.

In the past week there have been several Feathered Thorns at the window as well as Common Plume and 20-plume, but otherwise all very quiet.
