Moth Event - Llandygwydd

Saturday 18th May.
Seven members of the group met at Joyce's wonderful garden situated in a beautiful wooded valley in the village of Llandygwydd.

Joyce, Tony and myself set up four traps in different locations around the garden on Friday night.
The weather looked to be on our side, but as has been the case during this late spring the numbers were a little down on previous years.
We had 28 moths of  9 species as follows.

Oak-tree Pug 1,  Hebrew Character 14,  Small Phoenix 2,  Clouded Drab 4,  Common Quaker 3,  Muslin Moth 1,  Engrailed 1 (very worn),  Brimstone Moth 1,  Pale Brindled Beauty 1 (very,very worn).
