Third National Moth Night (of 3)

Not a great deal of Ivy still flowering but traps close by Ivy in woodland produced 27 (minimum) macro species. These included the 6th record of Tawny Pinion in the county - 3 of these were last year. Most numerous - 94 Chestnut, 56 Red-green Carpet & 56 Yellow-line Quaker.
Six micro species including the second Diurnea lipsiella, the first was in the RIS trap at Tregaron.
Also at least 10 Hornets, not as placid as they usually are.  Ina & Tony
Amblyptilia punctidactyla

Diurnea lipsiella

Grey Shoulder-knot
