Scalloped hook-tip

Not a great night on the carr at Cors Fochno, particularly as one light failed to operate. We had 7 macro species in 18 moths. Only one species new for us this year, a Scalloped hook-tip, equalling the earliest county date for this moth.

Interesting that the distribution strongly favours the north and east of the county. This nationally common species feeds on Silver and Downy Birch.
