Bulrush Wainscot at Ynys-hir

At last a decent night for moth trapping. Three actinic traps in the woodland at the RSPB reserve, gave us 17 macro species and 6 micros. Of the 110 moths Snout was the most numerous, followed by Common Marbled Carpet, Red-green Carpet, Brimstone and Pink-barred Sallow. Both Copper Underwing and Svensson's were identified but some slipped through the fingers. Others included: Purple Bar, September Thorn, Gold Spot, Spruce Carpet, Double-striped Pug, V-pug, Pinion-streaked Snout. Best of all was a Bulrush Wainscot, only the 6th record for the site, last one was in 2011.
