Devon carpet

We have received our first report for this year of Devon carpet. This comes from David Woolley at Rhos Llawr Cwrt, who has supplied the picture below, which compares the Devon carpet with a Water carpet he caught a few days ago. Devon carpet is a nationally scarce species which is recorded regularly in Ceredigion. David's first record for Devon carpet at Rhos Llawr Cwrt, was in 1988.

  1. Devon Carpet seems to be on the increase. As an example, it first appeared in Bucks in 2009 but has been recorded albeit in very low numbers most years since then. That's a good comparison image.
