Ynys-hir Woodland

Seven macro moth species and four micro (147individuals) last night at Ynys-hir. The main highlight was two Small Brindled Beauty, this is only the thirteenth record from three sites in the county since 2000.
The first appearance for us of March moth and Oak Beauty, one of the Ooo moths!
The four micro species were one each of Agonopterix ocellana, Acleris hyemana, Acleris ferrugana/notana and 56 Tortricodes alternella...no shortage of that species!
