Cosmopolitan Aberystwyth

There was little actually in the garden trap last night, but the fence next to it was popular, attracting Cosmopolitan and Pearly Underwing:


A supporting cast of Rush Veneer and Silver Ys suggested a good night for migrants, and two Blair's Shoulder Knots were my first of the year.

  1. I must get a fence like that! That is only the second record of Cosmopolitan in Ceredigion. The first was in October 1985 and documented in Entomologists Record Volume 98. Pearly Underwing is a slightly more frequent visitor to the county with 23 records since 2000, 9 of them in the hot summer of 2006.
