Trapping at Mwnt


I trapped on Tues and Wed at the clifftop campsite next to Mwnt.  It was windy on Tues so I put the trap on the edge of a small field of barley by some corn marigolds but within reach of the heathy plants on the cliff top and had a good catch of 38 macro species in the 15w actinic amongst which was this Shark, plus Crescent Dart,Bordered Sallow and a Sharp Angled Peacock, all new to my eyes.
On Wed it was calm but chilly so again the trap was near to flowers but not on the exposed cliff heath and attracted 2 Marbled Coronet and a Shoulder Stripe Wainscot (the latter not common in the south of the County?) plus Antler and a lot of Heart and Darts.
