Lower Ochrwyth - 15 August

Thursday night produced 139 moths of 60 species of which 19 were Micro - I was pleased with this Micro catch as numbers have not been very good in the garden this year.  Two of the Micro species are illustrated below, both being of "local" distribution in Gwent and new for year (NFY).  There were several other NFY: Copper Underwing; Square-spot Rustic; Catoptria pinella; and, Bucculatrix ulmella.  Others of interest included the 3rd Dusky Thorn of the year, Silver Y, Blood Vein (x2), Canary Shouldered Thorn, Diamond Back Moth, Rosy Rustic, Willow Beauty f. rebeli, Marbled Green and Black Arches.
