Cross Inn moths

Llain Cottage: Lunar Thorn
I had the pleasure of visiting Ceredigion again these past 2 days and stayed with friends near Cross Inn (the one on the New Quay road). I managed to run one trap in their garden for both nights despite the breeze and cool temperatures. 27 species recorded with one pug left to do. No micros Ina, so sorry. Most exciting, for me at least, was a single Lunar Thorn this morning. Spring species were still there, with Hebrew Character, Clouded Drab, Powdered Quaker and Common Quaker, but early Summer species dominated and included Cream Wave, Least Black Arches, Pale-shouldered Brocade, Clouded Bordered Brindle, Spectacle, Buff-tip. Commonest were Clouded Silver and Nut-tree Tussock.
