Blossom_underwing

Ina discovered another moth from last nights trapping, and it is our second Blossom underwing of the year, following one at Ynys-hir on the 28th March. This is the 12th county record since 2000 and the 74th in total. The recent 3rd edition of the field guide does not show Ceredigion on the distribution map, but this should be corrected in the forthcoming atlas. Its national status is "Local and Immigrant". All records since 2000 have come from Tregaron northwards with no coastal records, which could indicate that they are resident.
