Denmark Farm Trap

The temp was 3.3C at 3am (and only 4C at 7am,) sky was clear and moon quite bright  so no great expectation but 5 traps did produce 17 species for an appreciative audience which included some very well behaved children.  Ian explained some of the finer points and fielded questions so 2 hours flew by. The session finished with coffee and cakes courtesy of Denmark Farm.
The trails are open all year round from dawn to dusk and the habitats offer plenty of interest particularly in dragonflies and butterflies as soon as the sun shines.

  1. Well done Liz and Ian. We saw the forecast last night and decided not to trek all the way to Denmark farm instead putting two traps at Ynys-hir where we got 15 species including Hedge rustic and our first Autumnal rustic of the Autumn.

  2. I had a splendid pinkish Autumnal Rustic plus a plainer one on Sept 3rd at CYB.
