Seaview Moths, St Brides Wentlooge

10th July
Last night's trapping produced another bumper harvest of moths, we identified 115 moths from 42 species and I have to confess that there were also quite a few escapes, especially micro-moths.
We were delighted to see another rosy footman and swallow tailed moth, there were five elephant hawkmoths, the most we have trapped at one go.
We think this is a crescent moth, a new species for us.
