Moth morning at Ynys-hir

A small but enthusiastic group met at the RSPB reserve to see what had been attracted to the overnight moth traps. The numbers were not great, probably a reflection on the weather, but we had about 100 moths of 24 species, 3 of them micro moths. Firsts for the reserve this year were Great prominent, Golden-rod pug, Lesser swallow prominent, Shoulder stripe and Water carpet. The micros were Acleris literana, A. cristana and Dyseriocrania subpurpurella.
