A bright, clear and starry night last night brought a great change in the moth catch.
The Talybont garden trap and surrounding area only yielded a dozen species.
Amongst them was a late male Clay pictured below showing his black stripe or in this case a Y.




Agonopterix arenella, a species that feeds on Hemlock, was one of two micros.  The other was a Light Brown Apple moth, which we know feeds on Tony's apples!!
