Gordon Road, Blackwood

A rather wet night on Friday 12th June resulted in by far the best haul of moths so far in 2015 - at least 135 moths of 43 species including 15 NFYs.
By far the most interesting of the haul was a first record for VC35 for the micro moth Crocidosema plebejana which has been confirmed today with Sam Bosenquet, It is a scarce moth which usual inhabits coastal habitats, but does undergo migration movements in suitable conditions.
