Hafod

The disappointing turnout of moths (due to the freezing and moonlit conditions last night) belied the excellent habitat of the Hafod estate however other creatures took advantage of the latter and showed up:cuckoo called twice, water vole swam about in a pond and a peacock butterfly did a fly- by. A  dozen two-legged creatures also attended the convivial meeting and lavished unexpected attention on the very few but very variable Clouded Drabs and a less well marked Quaker!
We will try Hafod again in June but it will be short notice when the night is warm and humid so keep an eye on this blog!
Many thanks to Tony Ellis and staff at the estate for their generous help; John Rainbow for access to his private garden within the estate and to Red Liford for his part in the arrangements.
