Some autumnal moths

Another chilly night at Ynys-hir but we managed to record 12 species of macro moths including some autumnal species which we had not seen so far this year. There were 19 Red-green carpets (all wonderfully fresh and brightly coloured), 17 Common marbled carpet, 4 Green carpet (all very faded and not at all green), 3 Pink-barred sallow, Sallow, Snout, Pale pinion, Brindled green, Black rustic, Canary-shouldered thorn, Spruce carpet, and Frosted orange.

Another first for us was 3 Hornets which were very placid in the cold air.
