Seaview, St Brides Wentlooge

5th July.

We have had some excellent moth trapping evenings this season. Last night was no exception with 83 moths from 35 species in our Robinson trap.

The highlight for us was a Rosy footman which we have not caught before.  Two garden tigers, a poplar hawkmoth and three elephant hawkmoths contributed to the drama and we trapped a Dark sword grass for the second time in a week.Very pleasing!
