Lower Ochrwyth - 8 July

I didn't set the MV, but the outside light was left on for a while and surprisingly I recorded some 28 species within about 30 minutes including two new species for the year: Marbled Beauty and a Double Line.  Martin Anthony informs me that the Double Line is scarce in the county - only being recorded from the west several times in a year.  It has apparently been spreading eastwards from its probable stronghold in Glamorgan.

Other species recorded included: Angle Shades; Common Emerald; Sandy Carpet; Satin Lutestring; Beautiful Hook-tip; Green Silver Lines; Coxcomb Prominent; Peach Blossom and Green Arches.
