Mwnt and Cors Fochno

Yesterday four of us had a walk along the coast path north from Mwnt. Tried for Emperor Moth as the larvae have been found there in the past, but had no luck.
We did however find Anania funebris, a minimum of four, but there were probably many more that remained unseen.
Other species; Cydia ulicetana, Common Heath, M.calthella, G.simpliciella, the larval spinnings of Bramble-shoot moth and an, at present, unresolved Pug.

Last night's traps on Cors Fochno produced very little.  In fact one was empty but for a Brown Silver-line hiding beneath it...shivering!!
Six moths only in the other; Ruddy Highflyer, Green Carpet, Common Wave, Common Pug, Bryotropha terrella and the thirteenth record of Light Knot Grass away from Cors Caron out of a total of 530.
